Attorneys for convicted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo are asking federal judges in Virginia and Maryland to vacate his 10 life sentences for the shootings that terrorized the D.C. area for three weeks in 2002.
Convicted D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo said in a television interview that aired Thursday that he was sexually abused by John Allen Muhammad, his adult accomplice in shootings that terrorized the Washington area 10 years ago.
Ten years after the Beltway snipers terrorized the D.C. area, residents said they can remember the collective fear felt each day another death was reported and the paranoia that accompanied the most mundane errands.
Convicted D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo told actor William Shatner on a cable TV special that he and his partner tried to recruit fellow shooters for their 2002 spree and his accomplice killed one man for backing out, according to the program, which aired Thursday.
D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo said he and partner John Allen Muhammed were supposed to have had help in carrying out their attacks, which terrorized the Washington area in 2002.
In the fall of 2002, the Washington region was gripped by fear. Snipers indiscriminately targeted individuals in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
"You have become my enemy and as my enemy, I am going to kill you." So said D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad to his then-wife of a dozen years, Mildred, in 1999.
That's the kind that "no one listens to" and bares "no physical scars," she said.
"People can't see that manipulation and terror that the abuser put the victim under. You can put all the words in the dictionary together, and you cannot match that kind of fear," she said. "You don't have to have scars to be a victim of domestic violence. I had to protect myself because other people didn't believe me."
