DC sniper apologizes to victims' families

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Convicted sniper killer Lee Boyd Malvo apologized to the families of his victims in a Rockville, Md., courtroom before he was sentenced to life.

Malvo was given six consecutive life sentences without parole for the deaths of six people, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

The Post said Malvo listed the names of the six victims killed by him and his accomplice, John Allen Muhammad, in October 2002.

"I'm truly sorry, grieved and ashamed of what I've done to the families and friends," Malvo said. "Each of you relive this every morning, every birthday, every anniversary, every time you look in your children's eyes."

Malvo expressed particular concern over the death of bus driver Conrad Johnson, who Malvo claims was the only victim he personally killed.

"I thought of his sons, who just for once would like to play basketball with their father," Malvo said. "Just one more time see his face."

Johnson's mother, Sonia Wills, offered Malvo her forgiveness.

"I must say for the past four years I have hated you," she said. "Right now, I, Conrad's mother, forgive you ... I have to, my dear. I can't go on hating you. That won't bring Conrad back."
