Check It Out: D.C. Sniper's Wife Speaks Out

So the wife of John Allen Muhammad wasn't surprised that he was the D.C. sniper? This shouldn't be funny. But it is.


While her ex-husband faces execution, Mildred Muhammad is out peddling her book, Scared Silent, about her life with John Allen Muhammad, the Beltway sniper who killed ten people in the Washington, D.C., area.

"This is a difficult time for a lot of people, and my primary concern is to help my children through this period."
