John Allen Muhammad has been executed in Virginia for his part in a three-week killing spree in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. in 2002.
A final appeal for a reprieve was denied hours before the execution, when Gov. Tim Kaine rejected Muhammad’s request for clemency. Kaine’s decision came a day after the U.S. Supreme Court also refused to halt the execution.
