John Allen Muhammad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1419 words)
While awaiting execution in Virginia, in August 2005, he was extradited to Maryland to face some of the charges there, for which he was convicted of six counts of first-degree murder on May 30, 2006.
Identifying Muhammad led to the discovery that he had purchased a former police car in New Jersey on September 11, 2002, and a lookout broadcast to the public on that vehicle resulted in his arrest when it was spotted parked in a Maryland rest area on Interstate 270 by two alert citizens.
On April 22, 2005, the Virginia Supreme Court affirmed his death penalty, stating that Muhammad could be sentenced to death because the murder was part of an act of terrorism.
