Malvo's accomplice, John Allen Muhammad was sentanced to death for his role in the shootings earlier this year. Malvo first claimed that he was
brainwashed by Muhammad to take part in this crime spree.
Malvo avoided the death penalty, however will never step foot outside of prison. Did he deserve to be put to death?
