Seven years after he terrorized a city and a nation already reeling from the 9/11 and anthrax attacks, D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad may die for his crimes. Virginia prosecutors are asking a state court to set an execution date of November 9. Muhammad, 48, embarked on a seemingly random spree of violence over a three-week span in October 2002 with his partner, Lee Boyd Malvo, using a high-powered rifle to shoot 13 people, 10 of whom died, in the Washington, D.C. area. Malvo, meanwhile, remains in jail for life.
