And that’s what they were, jihad killings, as Jihad Watch readers knew in late 2003. Above is one of Lee Malvo’s jailhouse drawings. Another says, “I, Lee, will die for the revolution, jihad.” Michelle Malkin posted more last spring.
“Malvo gets life in 6 Md. sniper killings,” by Stephen Manning for Associated Press:
ROCKVILLE, Md. – Convicted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison for six murders in Maryland that were part of a three-week shooting spree that terrorized the Washington area in 2002.
The Maryland trial in Montgomery County Circuit Court included Malvo’s chilling insider account of his trip across the country with accomplice and mentor John Allen Muhammad.
In a brief statement in court Wednesday, Malvo apologized for his role in the killings.
“I’m truly sorry, grieved and ashamed for what I’ve done,” said Malvo, his voice breaking.
Malvo, 21, pleaded guilty in October to the murders in Montgomery County, where the series of 13 shootings began and ended in October 2002.
It is unlikely, however, that Malvo will ever serve time in a Maryland prison. He has already been sentenced to life in prison in Virginia for sniper shootings there and was sent to Maryland last year for a new trial on the condition he be returned after his case ended. That could happen within the next several days, said Darren Popkin, Montgomery County’s chief deputy sheriff.
