Prosecutors Seek to Try D.C.-Sniper Suspect as Adult

Prosecutors in Northern Virginia ask a juvenile court to rule that John Lee Malvo, 17, be tried as an adult for the murder of FBI employee Linda Franklin. Malvo is one of two suspects in a series of sniper-style shootings -- mostly in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. -- that left 13 people dead. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
