Two Sentenced in Beltway Sniper Case

March 12, 2004  | 

John Allen Muhammad, 43, was sentenced to death and Lee Boyd Malvo, 19, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for their roles in the Washington D.C.-area sniper spree that killed 10 people in 2002.

Muhammad was convicted of capital murder on Nov. 17 for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station near Manassas, Va. Muhammad maintains his innocence and denies any involvement in the sniper killings. His defense lawyers have motioned to have his sentence changed to life in prison, to match Malvo’s sentence.

Malvo, who was 17 when the sniper spree occurred, was sentenced for killing FBI analyst Linda Franklin, 47.

Both Malvo and Muhammad have yet to stand trial for the deaths of the other victims of the sniper killings.
