D.C. sniper to be executed tonight
Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad is scheduled to be executed in Virginia at 9 p.m.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Unless Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine steps in, sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad will be executed for the sniper attacks that terrorized the nation's capital region for three weeks in October 2002.

Muhammad is set to die by injection at 9 p.m. Tuesday at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt. His attorneys have asked Kaine to commute his sentence to life in prison because they say he is mentally ill.

The U.S. Supreme Court turned down Muhammad's final appeal Monday.

Muhammad was sentenced to death for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a Manassas gas station during a spree that left 10 dead across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Victims were gunned down while doing everyday chores like shopping or pumping gas.

John Allen Muhammad

JARRATT, Virginia —  The mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks that killed 10 in the Washington, D.C., region has been executed.

A prison spokesman says John Allen Muhammad died by injection at 9:11 p.m. Tuesday at Greensville Correctional Center.

Muhammad was executed for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station during the spree that terrorized Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., over a three-week period. His teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, was sentenced to life in prison.

Prison spokesman Larry Traylor says Muhammad had no final words. He says he didn't hear him utter a word the entire time.

Mastermind of Washington area sniper attacks executed
Tue Nov 10, 2009 9:35pm EST
 
(Video available at link above)

By Jonathan Ernst

Jarratt, VIRGINIA (Reuters) - John Allen Muhammad was executed on Tuesday for masterminding and carrying out with his teenage accomplice the 2002 sniper shootings that killed 10 people and terrified the Washington, D.C. region a year after the September 11 and the deadly anthrax attacks.

The 48-year-old Muhammad was put to death by lethal injection at the Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt, Virginia, said Virginia Department of Corrections spokesman Larry Traylor.

"Death was pronounced at 9:11 pm. There were no complications. Mr. Muhammad was asked if he wished to make a last statement. He did not acknowledge us or make any statement whatsoever," Traylor told reporters.

Muhammad was convicted of killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station near Manassas, Virginia, during a three-week shooting spree in October 2002 that spanned Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Muhammad's teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, also was convicted in a separate trial of another killing in Virginia and is serving a life sentence in prison.

Malvo was 17 at the time of the shootings.

There has been uncertainty over exactly how many of the victims were shot by Malvo and how many were killed by Muhammad, though courts have found they acted together in all of the sniper slayings.

The random shootings terrified many people in and around the U.S. capital a year after the hijacked plane attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and the mailing of deadly anthrax-laced letters to politicians and media organizations.

The pair shot innocent people who were going about the ordinary tasks of daily life in places like gas stations, shopping mall parking lots and outside restaurants and schools.

Authorities said Muhammad and Malvo cut a special hole in the back of a 1990 Chevrolet Caprice and fired rifle shots from the trunk of the car.

The execution took place after Virginia Governor Timothy Kaine rejected Muhammad's request for clemency based on his claims of mental illness.

"I find no compelling reason to set aside the sentence that was recommended by the jury and then imposed and affirmed by the courts," Kaine said in a statement.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned down a request by Muhammad's lawyers to halt his execution and also rejected their appeal.

Muhammad's current lawyers argued that his attorneys at trial were ineffective by allowing Muhammad to briefly represent himself at the start of his trial. They said he was too mentally impaired to act as his own lawyer.

D.C. sniper's execution met with grief, bitterness
November 11, 2009 3:37 a.m. EST
John Allen Muhammad was pronounced dead at 9:11 p.m. ET Tuesday by Virginia officials.

Bob Meyers, whose brother was shot dead while pumping gas, called Tuesday's execution surreal.

A vehicle reportedly carrying the body of John Allen Muhammad leaves the Greensville Correctional Center.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    * John Allen Muhammad is executed by the state of Virginia on Tuesday night
    * Survivor of one shooting victim said he had no sympathy for Muhammad
    * Another said he had forgiven the killer because the bitterness would rot him otherwise
    * Sniper Muhammad held D.C. area in grip of terror in 2002, at least 10 killed

Jarratt, Virginia (CNN) -- Justice fell short with the execution of Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad, one of his victims' survivors said after witnessing his death by lethal injection.

Muhammad died silently Tuesday night in a Virginia prison death chamber filled with lawyers, lawmen and his victims' survivors.

Convicted DC sniper Malvo tells paper he felt like ‘worst piece of scum’ over Va. shooting
September 30, 2012

WASHINGTON — Convicted D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo said in a newspaper interview published Sunday that the devastated reaction of a victim’s husband made him feel like “the worst piece of scum.”

Malvo expresses remorse in the interview with The Washington Post (wapo.st/SrLk9I) and urged the families of victims to try and forget about him and his partner John Allen Muhammad so they can move on.
Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the deadly spree in the Washington area carried by Malvo and John Allen Muhammad. The pair has been linked to 27 shootings across the country, including 10 fatal attacks in the Washington area.

 ::snipping2::

Malvo is serving a life sentence with no parole in Virginia. Muhammad was executed in Virginia in 2009

 ::snipping2::
When asked by the Post what he would say to victims’ families, the remorseful Malvo said there’s no way to properly convey an apology.

“We can never change what happened,” Malvo said. “There’s nothing that I can say except don’t allow me and my actions to continue to victimize you for the rest of your life.”

He added: “Don’t allow myself or Muhammad to continue to make you a victim for the rest of your life. It isn’t worth it.”

I hate to give him much credit for anything, but he is right.  I suppose his youthfulness should be a mitigating circumstance in considering what he did, and he, unlike John Allen Muhammad, seems to have some remorse for his actions.

He seems to have grown up and manned up to his actions.  I'd say he's a better man than Muhammad.
