Washington sniper to die by injection; EXECUTION.

A SNIPER who terrorised the US in a three-week killing spree that left 10 dead will be executed tomorrow after an 11thhour plea failed.

The US Supreme Court refused to stand in the way of John Allen Muhammad's execution by lethal injection for the random killing of Dean Harold Meyers in 2002.

Muhammad, 48, and Lee Boyd Malvo, 17, shot 16 people from a car in the Washington DC area. Malvo was given a life sentence.

Muhammad will be executed in Virginia at 2am GMT. A last-ditch plea has been made to Governor Timothy Kaine claiming he is mentally ill, but he has said he saw no reason to commute the sentence.

CAPTION(S):

LAST DAY Muhammad, 48
