Judge Tosses D.C. Sniper Malvo’s Sentence

A federal judge threw out Friday two life sentences without parole for Lee Boyd Malvo, one of two people convicted in the 2002 D.C. sniper killings.

In a hearing Friday in Norfolk, Virginia, Judge Raymond Jackson ordered that Malvo, who was 17 years old when he was arrested in the shooting deaths of 10 people, be re-sentenced.

Jackson based his decision on a Supreme Court ruling that found it unconstitutional to sentence juveniles to life in prison without parole.

Malvo and John Allen Muhammad were caught after a massive manhunt in 2002, when the series of random shootings terrorized the D.C. area.

Muhammad was executed in Virginia in 2009.
