Before the conclusion of a pretrial hearing, convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad complained to a judge he was being denied access to underwear and all his legal files. A spokeswoman for the Fairfax County, VA Sheriff's Office denied the charges.
Muhammad said his jailers also limited his access to his legal files and mail from his lawyers. His lawyers have argued for two days that there should be a change of venue to get an unbiased jury. The judge promised to investigate.
Fairfax County, Virginia prosecutors seek a second capital murder conviction for the slaying of FBI analyst Linda Franklin. They say thousands of newcomers arriving each year insure easy access to an unbiased jury.
