    ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) _ A man convicted of taking part as a teenager in deadly sniper attacks that terrorized the Washington area has lost a bid for a new sentence in Maryland. Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Robert Greenberg said in a ruling dated Tuesday that Lee Boyd Malvo’s “physical, mental and emotional state” and the influence of John Allen Muhammad was given full consideration before he was sentenced to life without parole for six counts of first-degree murder. Malvo was convicted in Maryland, and in Virginia, of playing a role when he was 17 in the 2002 shootings that...

    McLEAN, Va. — A federal judge on Friday tossed out two life sentences for one of Virginia's most notorious criminals, sniper Lee Boyd Malvo, and ordered Virginia courts to hold new sentencing hearings. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson in Norfolk said Malvo is entitled to new sentencing hearings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory life sentences for juveniles are unconstitutional. Malvo was 17 when he was arrested in 2002 for a series of shootings that killed 10 people and wounded three over a three-week span in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, causing widespread...

    WASHINGTON - A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.-area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday. Malvo was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the sniper-style attacks committed around the region in October 2002 along with John Allen Muhammad. Ten people were killed and three others were shot during a three-week period. Malvo appealed to the court saying he should not have been sentenced to life without parole because he was 17 years old at the time of...

    An attorney for a man convicted of taking part in sniper shootings that left 10 people dead in the Washington area is asking a judge to toss his life sentence because he was convicted as a juvenile. In a motion filed Friday in a Maryland county court, public defender James Johnston argues that Lee Boyd Malvo’s mandatory life sentence is illegal because the U.S. Supreme Court determined such sentences are unconstitutional for juveniles. …
  • Serial Killer Similar to Beltway Sniper Hunting in Chicago?

    Here’s something that people on the ground in Chicago are all freaked out about (but of course the media won’t report on it accurately and the police seem to be pretending that it’s not happening): is there a serial killer shooting at cars on the highway into Chicago similar to DC’s Beltway Sniper from years ago? Whenever these shootings are reported on, the media seems to go out of its way to just claim this is random gang violence. But…if that was true then wouldn’t this have always been happening through the years? I find it hard to believe the...

    A Louisiana man shot by Lee Boyd Malvo before the criminal spree that terrorized the Washington, D.C., area in 2002 has received a letter of apology from the convicted sniper. John C. Gaeta, 58, of Albany, said Thursday that he's glad Malvo wrote him but remains skeptical about Malvo's intentions. "I'm glad he wrote the letter," Gaeta said. "I do wonder, though, if he's truly sorry or if this is a part of him trying to get his sentence reduced. He knows that he should express remorse, so I question whether it is genuine and from the heart." Gaeta was...

    John Allen Muhammad is scheduled to be executed tomorrow for the Beltway-area sniper spree that left 10 innocent people dead in 2002. Several family members of the victims will attend. At the time of the murderous rampage that stretched over three, horror-filled weeks... where Muhammad and his young partner in crime, Lee Malvo, wreaked bloody havoc. I covered two main aspects of the story that were underplayed by the MSM–Lee Malvo’s illegal alien catch-and-release story and Nation of Islam convert Muhammad and Malvo’s Muslim hate-mongering. Snide MSM’ers and the CAIR propagandists attacked those of who called these thugs what they...

    Execution Date Set for John Allen Mohammed Ties to al-Qada and Jamaat ul-Fuqra Established byPaul L. Williams, A Virginia judge has set November 10 as the execution date for John Allen Mohammed, the Beltway sniper who masterminded terror attacks in the Washington, D.C. area that left 10 dead in the fall of October 2002. The time-table of the Beltway killings indicates Muhammad’s ties to ul-Fuqra and other Islamic terrorist groups. He acquired the 1990 Chevy Caprice that he would modify into his killing platform on the first anniversary of 9/11, and killed his first victim - - James...

    Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad was regularly whipped with hose pipes and electrical cords and beaten with hammers and sticks by family members during a brutal childhood, according to lawyers trying to save Muhammad from the death penalty. The lawyers argued in a federal court petition filed this week that the jurors who sent Muhammad to death row for the 2002 sniper spree were improperly barred from hearing most of the evidence of the harsh life Muhammad faced as a child. Muhammad and his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo , were convicted in 2003 of a random killing spree that...

    Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad does not deserve a new trial in Maryland, a state appeals court ruled Monday in a sharply worded unanimous decision that compared Muhammad to Jack the Ripper. The state Court of Special Appeals said Muhammad terrorized the Washington region in a rampage similar to that of the notorious Victorian serial killer who murdered at least five East London prostitutes in 1888. But the three-judge panel noted one distinction: "Jack the Ripper has never yet been brought to justice. The Beltway snipers have been." Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo were convicted last year on six counts...

    HONOLULU - The former Maryland police chief who headed the Washington-area sniper manhunt three years ago graduated as one of 40 new Honolulu police recruits. Charles Moose, 53, will hit the streets for patrol duty tomorrow morning alongside a police veteran. He graduated from the academy on Thursday. "It's been a long time since I've worked the street ... but it's exactly what I want to do over the next several years," he said. Moose led the task force that investigated the three-week shooting spree that left 10 people dead and terrorized the Washington area in 2002. John Muhammad and...

    One of the Washington D.C. snipers confessed to killing a man on a Southeast Side golf course four years ago, Tucson police said Friday. The confession from Lee Boyd Malvo on Thursday brings a sense of closure to Jerry Taylor's family, who for many years have believed that Malvo and fellow sniper John Allen Muhammad were behind the slaying on March 19, 2002. Taylor's daughter, Cheryll Witz, said she was ready to forgive Malvo for his crime. "I really do need to forgive him and I do believe he was brainwashed" by Muhammad, Witz said Friday. For several years, Tucson...

    WASHINGTON - Convicted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo told authorities that he and conspirator John Allen Muhammad were responsible for four shootings, two of them fatal, that had not been publicly linked to them, according to a published report. The Washington Post, citing a source familiar with the case, said in a story in Friday's editions the shootings occurred before the three-week spree in October 2002 in which 13 people were shot, 10 fatally, in the Washington area. The Post said a second source confirmed that investigators have received information implicating Malvo and Muhammad in the four other shootings. The sources...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    The sniper's plan: kill six whites a day for 30 days By Harry Mount in New York (Filed: 25/05/2006) One of the two snipers who murdered 10 people in a killing spree that terrorised Washington has revealed their plans to kill hundreds of children, policemen and rescue workers in an attempt to shut down cities across the country. John Allen Muhammad, 45, and his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, 21, brought America's capital to a standstill in 2002 as they picked off white targets at petrol stations and shops in the city's prosperous suburbs.

    Lee Boyd Malvo, testifying in a Rockville courtroom yesterday, called his former mentor and convicted sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad a "coward" and said he is offering his side of the 2002 attacks "for the victims, for what it's worth, if anything." "I am not proud of myself, and I'm just trying to make amends, if possible," said Malvo, 21, at the end of a dramatic day in the trial of Muhammad, who faces the death penalty in six fatal Montgomery County sniper attacks -- part of a three-week shooting spree that killed 10 persons in the Washington area.
