Life In Prison For Malvo

Jury unable to get a unanimous vote for the death penalty.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - The jury in the Washington sniper case Tuesday spared Lee Boyd Malvo from the fate awaiting his mentor John Allen Muhammad - the death penalty - after his lawyers portrayed him as an impressionable boy who had fallen under Muhammad's murderous spell.

Malvo, 18, will be instead be locked away for the rest of his life.

A federal prosecution is still a possibility.

Yep.

And I'm a bit surprised they couldn't get a death sentence on this guy. If the jury thought he was responsible for the murders--which they presumably did since they convicted him--they the "but the old guy was really charming" defense seems rather lame in sentencing.
