The Takeaway

DC Sniper John Muhammad to be Put to Death

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

John Allen Muhammad, the "D.C. Sniper," is scheduled to die by lethal injection tonight in Virginia. In October 2002, Muhammad and a then-teenaged accomplice terrorized the Washington D.C. area with a series of shootings. Cheryll Witz's father, Jerry Taylor, was killed by the snipers in March 2002. She will attend the execution tonight, and says a confession by one of the killers helped her get closure. We'll put the search for closure to Dr. Sindey Weissman, a psychiatrist and professor of psychology at Northwestern University.
