LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A judge has issued a gag order in the capital murder case against the man accused of killing one soldier and wounding another at a military recruiting office in Arkansas.
Judge Alice Lightle issued the order Monday after prosecutors requested it to block court officials and police from discussing the case.

Jim Hensley, attorney for suspect Abdulhakim Muhammad, said last week his client was influenced by hardened terrorists with whom he was jailed in Yemen.
Muhammad allegedly wanted to kill as many soldiers as he could because of harm he believed the military has done to Muslims.
Killed at the west Little Rock office was Army Pvt. William Long of Conway, who had just completed basic training and never saw combat.
