Malvo Sniper Trial Opens Opening statements are made in the capital murder trial of Washington-area sniper suspect Lee Boyd Malvo. Malvo, 17, is charged with murdering Linda Franklin during a string of random shootings last fall. The trial is on pause until Monday, in part because some evidence to be used in Malvo's trial is at another court, where Malvo's co-defendant, John Allen Muhammad, is being tried. Hear NPR's Jackie Northam.
