ROCKVILLE – Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge John Greenberg ruled against convicted “D.C. sniper” Lee Boyd “John” Malvo’s appeal of the life sentences he received for the murder of six people in 2002.
“The decision of Judge Greenberg today affirms that Mr. Malvo was properly sentenced to a maximum sentence available for his heinous acts – six consecutive sentences of live without the possibility of parole,” said State’s Attorney for Montgomery County John McCarthy.
Malvo, along with his co-conspirator John Allen Muhammad where convicted for a string of murders in 2002 in Maryland and in Virignia. Muhammad was eventually executed by lethal injection in Virginia, while Malvo is serving out a life sentence.
