The execution of John Allen Muhammad will reportedly take place tonight.
Richmond, Virginia (WiredPRNews.com) – The execution of the man labeled the DC sniper is set to take place Tuesday night. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the governor of Virginia has refused to grant clemency for John Allen Muhammad, who was sentenced to die by lethal injection after killing ten people over the course of three weeks in Virginia, Washington, and Maryland.
Gov. Tim Kaine is quoted by the AP as stating of the crimes, “I think crimes that are this horrible, you just can’t understand them, you can’t explain them… They completely dwarf your ability to look into the life of a person who would do something like this and understand why.”
Lee Boyd Malvo, the teenage accomplice of Muhammad in the killings, was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
