On the stand today...the father recounted early days with his child, watching planes and riding bikes - innocent times.
While in closing arguments...the sniper's defense team put forth that Lee Malvo wasn't born evil... ...rather, he was manipulated and controlled by John Allen Mohammad, the alleged mastermind of the Washington area killing spree that left 10 people dead and 3 others wounded.
STANDUP: Last Thursday...Malvo was convicted for the October 14, 2002 murder of FBI analyst Linda Franklin outside this home depot in Fairfax County, Virginia. She was shot dead while loading packages into her car.
Lead prosecutors Robert Horan told jurors that murder...and the others..were quote, "outrageously vile"... and fit the textbook definition of crimes that deserve the death penalty. And he said the teen's relationship with Mohammad doesn't matter. "He did it not... John Muhammad." Horan told jurors. "He's the sniper. He's the shooter."
Now jurors have to decide how Malvo will pay. It took them 13 hours to find him guilty. How long then, to decide if he lives or dies? Scott Rapoport, CBS News, Fairfax County, Virginia.))
