Muhammad is currently on death row in Prince William County, Virginia for the killing of Dean Myers. With his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, Muhammad killed Myers and nine others in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia over the course of three weeks. Muhammad's attorney, Jonathan Sheldon, says he will appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
