UPDATE ~ Prosecutors in sniper case file motion to remove judge
Thomas Bird at 7:25 PM ET

Prosecutors filed a motion Wednesday afternoon to recuse Jonathan Thacher from John Allen Muhammad's second death-penalty case. Read the motion here [PDF]. The motion seeks to remove the judge on grounds that he improperly conducted his own investigation by interviewing witnesses and visiting the detention center where Muhammad is being kept. AP has more. JURIST's Paper Chase reported earlier today on other developments in the sniper case.
