Sniper Trial

Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad wants to be his own lawyer at his upcoming trial in Maryland.

He's asking a judge to let him represent himself in his trial for a string of six killings in 2002.

In a letter, Muhammad says he has no confidence or trust in the two public defenders assigned to the case.

A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Muhammad is scheduled to go on trial May first for six murders in a wave of shootings that terrorized the Washington, D.C. area.

He's already been convicted and sentenced to death for a sniper shooting in Virginia.
