Trial of accused sniper Muhammad could be moved to Southwest Virginia?

In what is surely the most bizarre thing in the stack of newspapers that accumulated while I was out of town, the Bristol paper has this article about the possibility that the John Allen Muhammad trial could be moved to Abingdon, which is just plain stupid, for the reasons pointed out in the article. One of the bizarre aspects is the suggestion that the trial would be held in the federal courthouse, which is surely not under the control of Virginia's state courts, and which is not a big place.
