We could have an execution soon in Oregon. An Oregon death row inmate is expected to waive all future appeals at a hearing later this week, possibly clearing the way for the State's first execution since 1997.  Gary Haugen, 49, and another defendant were sentenced to death for the 2003 slaying of fellow inmate David Polin. Haugen has written a letter to the State Court Administrator, asking for all appeals be waived and the process for execution to begin immediately. A death-warrant hearing is scheduled for this Friday before a Marion County Circuit court Judge.
