This Thursday Nov. 20, 2003 file photo shows Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney Paul S. Ebert points to convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad as he delivers his closing remarks during the penalty phase of his trial in courtroom 10 at the Virginia Beach Circuit Court in Virginia Beach, Va., Thursday Nov. 20, 2003. Ebert has sent more criminals to death row than any prosecutor in Virginia, but Tuesday could be the first time he watches one take his last breath. He is scheduled to watch the execution of Paul Warner Powell.
