And that's even assuming the death penalty isn't invoked.
At this point, the Federal government can theoretically 
prosecute with the death penalty because one of the victims 
was an FBI agent.  And both Maryland and Virginia have 
state death penalty statutes.  That's three different 
jurisdictions that can try the defendants with the death 
penalty.  Not only that, but the defense wouldn't be able 
to mount a "double jeopardy" argument because each of the 
shootings were distinct, separate events and could therefore 
be prosecuted individually (at the very least, there could
be a different trial in each state).  

On top of all this, Alabama can file its own capital 
murder charge in connection with the robbery that happened
there.  /Sandy/
