Muhammad’s lawyer did not return a phone call seeking comment Friday.
Virginia Attorney General William C. Mims said he was “pleased” with the court’s decision.
Prince William County Commonwealth’s Attorney Paul S. Ebert, who prosecuted Muhammad, said the decision brings the state closer to being able to execute Muhammad.
“Hopefully Mr. Muhammad will be meeting his maker in the near future,” Mr. Ebert said.
