Attorneys for the so-called D.C. sniper are trying to convince Governor Tim Kaine that their client is too mentally ill to be executed.
John Allen Muhammad's lawyers say they gave Kaine a compilation of interviews with attorneys, mental health experts and witnesses showing Muhammad's mental illness. The U.S. Supreme Court has banned executions of people who are mentally ill.
Muhammed was convicted of killing a man at a gas station in Manassas Virginia in 2002. The shooting was one of a string of attacks across the D.C. region.
Muhammad's execution is schedule for November 10th.
