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.

WASHINGTON -- A resolution passed in Virginia's Prince William County last week to crack down on illegal immigrants might bring a mass relocation to welcoming states like Maryland, experts said. The law bars illegal immigrants from obtaining business licenses or using services for the homeless, elderly and drug-addicted. In addition, police must check suspects' status if there is reason to believe they are here illegally. Full funding for the law has not yet been approved, so the effective date of the legislation has been delayed.

A former Howard County resident has been indicted in the alleged abduction, assault and robbery of a woman in Prince William County, Va., eight years ago and the prosecutor said the case might be related to a string of similar incidents in the state. Among the cases authorities said might be linked to the incidents is the 1996 abduction and killing of Baltimore doctoral student Alicia Showalter Reynolds. A Prince William grand jury returned an indictment Monday against Darrell David Rice, 36, on abduction with intent to defile, robbery and malicious wounding charges in the February 1996 incident involving a 38-year-old woman.

Convicted snipers John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo will almost certainly face more trials in Virginia before they are extradited to Maryland or any other state, the Virginia governor's office said yesterday. A final decision has not been made, but a spokeswoman for Virginia Gov. Mark Warner said it is "extremely unlikely" that Muhammad and Malvo will be sent out of state while Virginia prosecutors still have cases they want to try. "I don't think the governor will take any action that will prevent that from happening," said the spokeswoman, Ellen Qualls.

When the Walt Disney Co. conducted the confidential study that led to the selection of a site in the Virginia countryside for a theme park focused on American history, it apparently didn't take into account a distinctive feature of the Washington region: This is an area where significant numbers of people are savvy about government and know how to make their voices heard. For a corporation that thrives on an image of wholesomeness, it must have been painful indeed to be denounced by eminent historians as well as by beloved public figures ranging from the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to the wise and witty Russell Baker.

MANASSAS, Va. - Lawyers for sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad withdrew a request yesterday that their client be tried by a judge instead of a jury, and the judge in the case said he would consider moving the trial elsewhere in Virginia to ensure a fair trial. Muhammad's attorneys said they would file a new motion this week regarding how their client should be tried, but it seemed less likely that they would vigorously pursue a bench trial. They spent much of a 2 1/2 -hour hearing yesterday arguing that the trial should be moved from the Washington region.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Swayed by the youthfulness and troubled past of Lee Boyd Malvo, a jury voted yesterday to spare the life of the junior member of the sniper duo whose murderous rampage around the nation's capital last year left 10 people dead, three more wounded and millions fearing they would be next in the sniper's cross hairs. The 18-year-old Jamaican native at first looked blankly at his lawyers, but then offered a wan smile after the jury read the decision that will imprison him for life without parole for capital murder in the death of Linda Franklin, 47, an FBI analyst shot at random.

MANASSAS, Va. - Paul B. Ebert, Prince William County's chief prosecutor for more than three decades, boasts that his aggressive approach has sent a clear message to violent criminals heading into his jurisdiction: Don't even think about it. "They think we're tough on crime," Ebert says, quickly adding that it's true. "The criminal element and those folks who go from jurisdiction to jurisdiction know not to come into Virginia, and even more so they know not to come into this county." John Allen Muhammad, the prosecutor figures, must not have gotten the message.

River Hill's Lee McDuff, the county's premier girls distance runner who has earned 10 state titles in cross country and indoor and outdoor track, will attend the University of Virginia in the fall. William & Mary recruited McDuff more heavily than Virginia and offered the 17-year-old a scholarship, but she went with her heart. "I liked everything about Virginia a lot more, and my parents told me to go where I would be the happiest," said McDuff, who has a 3.92 grade-point average.
