Statements that sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad made to investigators last year after his arrest at a Maryland rest stop should not be allowed into his trial because he was not advised of his Miranda rights, his attorneys wrote in a motion released yesterday. The interrogation "generated few statements," Muhammad's attorneys wrote in the motion, but they said it should be thrown out nonetheless because police did not inform Muhammad of his right to remain silent and his right to an attorney.

On Tuesday, May 21, my son graduated from HCC, and I want to thank the many people who made his graduation possible. In 1994, he was diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder: not otherwise specified, in Prince William County, Va. It became clear that Prince William was not the place for him to receive his education and I was fortunate to get a job in the Howard County School System in 1996. In 1996, Howard County was not the school system it is now for students with autism and other kids on the autism spectrum.

The trial of alleged sniper John Allen Muhammad was moved yesterday to the resort town of Virginia Beach, where the judge in the case hopes to find a jury untouched by the fear and anxiety that gripped the Washington, D.C., suburbs last fall. The move from Manassas, Va., means neither sniper suspect will be tried in the region where prosecutors say they killed 10 people and wounded three others in October. Lee Boyd Malvo's trial was moved two weeks ago to Chesapeake - a town adjacent to Virginia Beach.

Their arguments have been called extremist, alarmist and off-the-wall. But claims by a newly formed group that the proposed Arundel Mills mall will destroy the Piney Run watershed and create traffic gridlock are based on the impacts associated with a similar mall in Virginia.While Prince William County officials view Potomac Mills mall as an economic success, others say the shopping complex has led to deterioration of nearby Potomac River tributaries and has been a major contributor to the area's notorious traffic snarls.

FAIRFAX, Va. - A Virginia judge cleared the way yesterday for 17-year-old Lee Boyd Malvo, one of two suspects in the Washington-area sniper shootings last fall, to be tried as an adult for capital murder and possibly face the death penalty. After hearing testimony from 24 witnesses tying Malvo, also known as John Lee Malvo, to four shootings, three of them fatal, Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Charles J. Maxfield ruled that there was enough evidence to send the allegations against the teen to Circuit Court for trial.

Looking for a job? Try Frederick. Employment is growing faster there than in all but nine other large counties in the nation, according to a Department of Labor analysis released yesterday that looked at December figures. The number of jobs swelled by 3.8 percent in Frederick County compared with the same month the year before - a time when employment didn't budge a bit across the United States. Chalk it up in part to the powerful influence of Washington, which has spread affluence to suburbs both near and far. Loudoun County, Va., is tied for first on the list of fast job creation; Prince William County, Va., is third.

WASHINGTON - Apparent evidence that Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger of two suspects charged in the Washington-area sniper shootings, was the gunman in most of the attacks could complicate the case against the other suspect, John Allen Muhammad, senior law enforcement officials said yesterday. As defense lawyers for Malvo, 17, pledged to try to have statements that their client made late last week to authorities in Fairfax County, Va., barred from his trial, lawyers close to both suspects' defense teams said that those statements could be used to help Muhammad, 41, in Prince William County, Va., where he has been charged with murder and terrorism.
