Monster in My Family - D.C. sniper attacks - Netflix

The D.C. sniper attacks (also known as the Beltway sniper attacks) were a series of coordinated shootings that occurred during three weeks in October 2002, in the states of Maryland and Virginia, and the District of Columbia. 10 people were killed and three others were critically injured, in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and along Interstate 95 in Virginia. The snipers were John Allen Muhammad (aged 41 at the time) and Lee Boyd Malvo (aged 17 at the time), who travelled in a blue, 1990 Chevrolet Caprice sedan. Their crime spree, begun in February 2002, featured murders and robberies in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Washington, which resulted in seven deaths and seven injured people; in ten months, the snipers killed 17 people and injured 10 others. In September 2003, the adult Muhammad was sentenced to death, and, in October, the adolescent Malvo was sentenced to six consecutive life-sentences without parole. On November 10, 2009, Muhammad was put to death by lethal injection, at the Greensville Correctional Center near Jarratt, Virginia. In 2017, Malvo's conviction to a life sentence without parole was overturned on appeal in Virginia, with re-sentencing ordered pursuant to the Supreme Court's ruling in the case of Miller v. Alabama (2012), which voided mandatory life-sentence punishments for adolescent criminals as legally unconstitutional. Under the re-sentencing, Malvo's minimum sentence to prison will be determined by a judge; the available maximum sentence would be life imprisonment. The ruling does not apply to the six life sentences Malvo received in Maryland.
