Stephen Kea and Darlene Kea of Jarratt, Virginia stand with their seven year old son, Colby Kea, to show their support for the victims of John Allen Muhammad, the so-called "Washington sniper" responsible for gunning down 10 and wounding three in the D.C.-area in 2002, near the entrance to the Greensville Correctional Center hours before Muhammad's 9 p.m. execution in Jarratt, Virginia on November 10, 2009.  Virginia Governor Tim Kaine refused to grant a stay of clemency and the U.S. Supreme Court turned down the request for a stay of execution despite religious objections due to Muhammad's mental health.
