DC sniper Muhammad set to die by lethal injection

Only 7 years till execution. That is an unbelievable improvement then the 20 - 30 years you see all the time. Does Virginia have a fast lane? Or did John Allen Mohammad, apparently we are using three names cuz he was a serial killer, wave his appeals like Mcvey did?

I don't know and don't care. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

RICHMOND, Va. — Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad will die by lethal injection when he is executed next month, Virginia officials said Tuesday.

Muhammad declined to choose between lethal injection and electrocution, so under state law the method defaults to lethal injection, Virginia Department of Corrections spokesman Larry Traylor said.

Muhammad is scheduled to be executed Nov. 10 for the October 2002 slaying of Dean Harold Meyers at a Manassas gas station during a string of shootings.

In all, 10 people were killed were in four states, including Alabama and Louisiana, before Muhammad and teenage co-defendant Lee Boyd Malvo moved on to Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia for a rampage that terrified residents of the D.C. region. Six people also were wounded.

Malvo is serving a life sentence.

Muhammad's lawyers have asked the Virginia governor for clemency and plan to file an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court early next month.
