    After the feds get done prosecuting him, he can also be prosecuted in state court. Maybe someone who practices law in fed court can answer this for sure, but I don't think the feds have a crime of felony murder, but most states do, so there is at least one crime (felony murder for his brother's death in the course of their felony flight from law enforcement, aggravated assaults/attempted murders for shooting at officers) that could ONLY be prosecuted in state court versus federal.

    The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. --John F. Kennedy
