LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The second week of a trial for a man who confessed to shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting station in Arkansas has started slowly, with lawyers and the judge spending the morning in conference.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys for Abdulhakim Muhammad spent the bulk of Monday morning in the judge's chambers, out of earshot of the audience and reporters.
Trial is to resume at 1 p.m.
Muhammad is charged with capital murder for killing Army Pvt. William Andrew Long and attempted capital murder for wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula (ee-ZEEG'-wuh-luh) in 2009. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
He's confessed to the shooting, but says it's justified because of U.S. military action in the Middle East.
The jury has not yet been brought into the courtroom.
