Chesapeake wants no Malvo, but Judge Roush moves case there

The AP reports here that Judge Roush of the Fairfax County Circuit Court has transferred the venue for the John Malvo sniper trial to the City of Chesapeake.

Earlier, I saw, via Virginia Lawyers' Weekly, that the Virginian-Pilot was reporting here that the City of Chesapeake has notified Judge Roush that it does not want the Malvo trial transferred to that fair city.

I never heard of something like that before - maybe the federal prosecutors should have solicited similar letters from every other jurisdiction in the state.
