Mildred Muhammad to speak at Fort Lee

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-The ex-wife of D.C. sniper, John Allen Muhammad, will be in our area Wednesday talking about domestic violence.

Mildred Muhammad will be the guest speaker at Fort Lee Wednesday morning at nine.

The event is part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Mildred was married to Muhammad for 12 years and had three children with him.

Investigators believed Muhammad's and Lee Boyd Malvo's 2002 killing spree was part of a bigger plot to kill Mildred so John could regain custody of their kids.

Muhammad was executed in 2009.
