Sniper Muhammad case judge recuses himself

The Washington Times reports here ("Sniper judge recuses himself," 9/22/04) and the Washington Post reports here ("Judge Removes Himself From Va. Sniper Case," 9/22/04) that the trial court judge in the Fairfax County case against sniper John Muhammad has recused himself after he was accused of making an independent investigation related to the defendant's speedy trial defense.

The case has been reassigned to former VBA president Langhorne Keith.
