The decision allowing sniper suspect John Muhammad to serve as his own lawyer isn't sitting well with at least one shooting victim called to testify against him. Kellie Adams was critically wounded last fall outside the Alabama liquor store where she worked. Authorities say that shooting is linked to at least two of the sniper attacks in the Washington area. Adams says she still plans to be in Virginia Beach today to testify, although she says she's apprehensive about Muhammad cross-examining her. She says "There's nothing worse than having to look at the man who tried to kill you." Still, Adams says prosecutors have assured her that security will be heightened for the trial. And although she isn't looking forward to confronting Muhammad, she says wants to do everything she can to aid his prosecution. Copyright 2003 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
