Sniper Clemency

Oct. 18, 2009

Montgomery County, VA-  Lawyers for the Washington D.C. sniper ask for clemency.

John Allen Muhammad is scheduled for execution next month, but his attorney now say they are looking to save his life.

Muhammad was convicted in a string of shootings that left 10 people dead.  He is also accused of opening fire at a Montgomery ABC store, killing Claudine Parker and injuring Kellie Adams. 

The Montgomery County District Attorney says it still plans to try the case.   Virginia's Governor has previously said it's unlikely he will grant clemency.
