At the age of 17, Malvo and John Allen Muhammad were responsible for the death of 10 people and the injury of 3 more.
Lee Boyd Malvo was denied release by the Department of Corrections in Virginia twenty years after he and an accomplice were responsible for the murder of ten persons in the city of Washington, District of Columbia.
While Malvo was just 17 years old at the time, he and John Allen Muhammad were responsible for 10 killings and 3 attempted murders that were perpetrated over a period of three weeks in October 2002. The two started their journey in Washington state and made their way to the region around the nation’s capital, where they were responsible for the deaths of other individuals along the way.
In Virginia, a court convicted Malvo guilty of first-degree murder, and he was sentenced to an unbreakable life term without the chance of parole. Due to a slew of decisions made by the Supreme Court as well as a change in the law in Virginia, Malvo was finally granted the opportunity to petition for parole after spending almost twenty years behind bars.
Malvo’s parole application was refused on August 30 by the Virginia Parole Board due to the fact that he is still a threat to society and needs to spend extra time behind bars, as stated in the state records of Parole Board judgments for the month of August.
