(one of the) D.C. sniper(s) executed

John Allen Muhammad, the convicted so-called D.C. sniper, was put to death by the state of Virginia.

He was killed by lethal injection, at Greensville Correctional Center, about an hour south of Richmond after Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, as expected, declined to grant a request to commute the sentence to life in prison.

He was pronounced dead at 9:11 p.m., prison spokesman Larry Traylor told reporters

Seven years is obviously a ridiculously long time for the process to take, given the circumstances, but there's one thing you can say about it taking seven years - it's better than taking eight.
