Jamaican-Born Sniper`s Mentor Executed


CaribWorldNews, JARRATT, VA, Weds. Nov. 11, 2009: A former U.S. Army veteran, sniper killer and mentor to Jamaican migrant, Lee Boyd Malvo, was last night executed in a Virginia prison.

John Allen Muhammad, the mastermind of the 2002 deadly sniper rampage that left 10 people dead, died quietly by lethal injection at 9:11 p.m. Tuesday night at the Greensville Correctional Center, prison officials said.

His execution came a day after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to halt the death sentence and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine rejected a request for clemency.

Muhammad, 48, was killed more than seven years after he and Malvo began the sniper spree that killed ten and wounded six others.

Muhammad`s attorney said he spent the final hours on Tuesday afternoon with his client and unidentified members of the convicted killer`s family.

Meanwhile, Malvo is serving a life prison sentence. It is alleged Muhammad mentored Malvo into the crime spree, including turning a car they travelled in, into a killing machine.
