Virginia: Sniper Requests Clemency

The Washington Post reports that attorneys for 48-year old sniper John Allen Muhammad have filed a clemency petition with Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D). The basis of the request on behalf of Mr. Muhammad, who is to be executed on November 10, is that their client is "mentally ill." The petition references - among other things - "brain damage, brain dysfunction, neurological deficits" and "psychotic and delusional behavior." See story here.
