Inmate sentenced to death in prison guard slaying
A 54-year-old inmate has been sentenced to death for killing a Washington state corrections officer in a prison chapel two years ago.
A Snohomish County Superior Court jury took about an hour to convict him of aggravated murder last Thursday, and the same jury sentenced him to death Wednesday morning. The only other possible sentence was life in prison without release.
