Oregon Supreme Court To Hear Haugen Death Request
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Convicted murderer Gary Haugen's request to be executed will be heard by the state Supreme Court this week. The seven justices will hear oral arguments Thursday on whether the twice-convicted murderer can legally reject an unconditional reprieve issued by Gov. John Kitzhaber in 2011. Kitzhaber's action blocked the execution two weeks before it was scheduled to take place. The Statesmen Journal reports Haugen won the first round in Marion County Circuit Court.
