One day after the Virginia State trooper gunned down in the line of duty was laid to rest, new information is coming to light about the suspect charged with the shooting.

Court papers released Wednesday show Russell Brown told investigators God made him do it, and told one of the agents interviewing him he would be the next to die.

The 28 year old is charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder of a police officer.

Master Trooper J. A. Walker was shot and killed during a traffic stop last Thursday on interstate 85 in Dinwiddie County. Thousands of people turned out Tuesday for Walker's funeral.
