A federal district court judge tossed out 2 life sentences for D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo on Friday. Malvo and his "father figure" John Allen Muhammad were convicted of the sniper-style shootings that killed ten people and wounded three others in the Washington D.C. area in 2002.

Unlike the rest of us, DC sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad now knows the exact date when he will die.
A Virginia judge on Wednesday set a Nov. 10 execution date for John Allen Muhammad, mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area that left 10 dead.
Prince William County Circuit Judge Mary Grace O'Brien picked a Tuesday for the execution so that courts would be open the day before in case of any last-minute legal appeals.
Jonathan Sheldon, Muhammad's attorney, said Muhammad would appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and ask Gov. Timothy M. Kaine for clemency.
Muhammad was sentenced to death for the slaying of Dean Meyers, who was shot at a Manassas gas station during a three-week killing spree in October 2002 that left 10 dead in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
He and his teenage accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, were also suspected of shootings in several other states, including a killing in Louisiana and another in Alabama. Malvo is serving life in prison.
