WASHINGTON — One of sniper mastermind John Allen Muhammad’s ex-wives says it was "very difficult" to watch her children grieve as their father was executed. Mildred Muhammad told The Associated Press on Thursday that she and her three teenage children watched news coverage of his Virginia execution in complete silence at their Maryland home Tuesday. She says the children asked to see their father but he did not meet with them. Mildred Muhammad maintains she was the real target of the 2002 sniper attacks that killed 10 in the Washington, D.C., region. Her ex-husband was executed for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station during the spree that terrorized Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., over a three-week period. His funeral is scheduled next week in Baton Rouge, La. Copyright 2009 The Associated Press. Photo caption: In this photo, Mildred Muhammad poses for a portrait in Washington.
