By Jonathan Wilson

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block tomorrow's scheduled execution of sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad. The court did not comment Monday on why it refused to consider the appeal.

Muhammad is scheduled to die by injection at a Virginia prison for the slaying of Dean Harold Meyers. Meyers was shot at a gas station during a three-week spree in 2002 across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Muhammad still has a clemency petition before Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine.

Muhammad's attorney, Jonathan Sheldon, says "Virginia will execute a severely mentally ill man who also suffered from Gulf War Syndrome the day before Veterans Day."
