Accused recruiting shooter cannot fire attorneys

LITTLE ROCK A judge has ruled the man accused of shooting a soldier to death and wounding another outside a Little Rock military recruiting station can't fire his attorneys or represent himself.
Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Herb Wright on Monday denied Abdulhakim Muhammad's request to dismiss his attorneys. He said Muhammad's trial, set to start July 18, has already been delayed enough.
Defense attorney Patrick Benca says he didn't expect the judge to grant the request. Benca also says he expects the trial to go forward as scheduled.
Muhammad is charged with capital murder in the June 2009 shooting death of Pvt. William Long of Conway and attempted capital murder in the wounding of Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula of Jacksonville. He has told The Associated Press the shooting was revenge for American killings of Muslims.

That’s nearly two years - two years! And this POS is still a guest of the Greybar Hotel at the cost to the taxpayers of >$40,000/yr. Nice.
I hope all those public-defenders’ office do-gooders are enjoying their $300/hr hour chats with Mr. Moo-Hammed.
Throw him in a cage with a bunch of starving hogs.
Press in general does not consider this a terrorist event and I have never heard it included when listed of events.
There are not even any charges of terrorism against him even after confessing that was his motivation.
Eric Holder. Anymore need be written?
