Convicted DC Sniper John Allen Muhammad will be put to death on Nov. 10 under a ruling today by Prince William County Circuit Judge Mary Grace O’Brien.
As reported by The Washington Post , the commonwealth had asked for a Nov. 9 date, a Monday. The judge set the execution of sentence for the next day, however, so government offices would be open the day before in the event of last minute court action.
Muhammad was accused in a string of shootings in four states and Washington that killed 10 people and injured six. He was sentenced to death for the 2002 killing of Dean Meyers in Prince William County.
