This photo provided by the Virginia Department of Corrections shows Lee Boyd Malvo. As a teenager, Malvo terrorized the Washington region in 2002 as one-half of a sniper team.

At issue is whether Malvo should be resentenced in Virginia in light of rulings restricting life-without-parole sentences for crimes by juveniles. (Virginia Department of Corrections via AP)
