"Lawyers for sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad asked yesterday for a trial by judge instead of trial by jury."
That's pretty desperate. But I guess this may be one of those rare occasions when a judge might be less likely to convict than a jury. Still, since the prosecutor in Virginia has the right to a jury trial I think it's a moot point. Maybe they did it to strengthen the attempt to change venue.
