D.C. Sniper's execution to go as scheduled Tuesday

 Posted By Mindy Blake - email

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop the execution of John Allen Muhammad.

Muhammad is scheduled to die Tuesday by lethal injection at a Virginia prison.

He was convicted of being the mastermind behind the 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C. area.

He also had a teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo.

In all, 10 people were killed in four states.

Malvo admitted he and Muhammad shot and killed Jerry Taylor at the Fred Enke Golf Course in Tucson in 2002.

In that case Malvo was given immunity, and Pima County prosecutors decided not to try Muhammad because he was already on death row.

It's believed Muhammad also shot and wounded Albert Michalczyk on a golf course in Florida.

Michalczyk lives in Oro Valley.
