An Oregon judge has ruled that the execution of Gary Haugen can proceed.  The judge agreed with Haugen that unless he accepts the Governor's reprieve, the Governor's moratorium on executions is not valid.  Amy Wojcicki, in the Governor's Office, says he wants the Legislature and the people of Oregon to decide whether the death penalty should remain in effect. 

 

The judge ruled that since Haugen doesn't want the reprieve, an execution date should be set.  The Governor is reviewing the decision and has not decided whether the state will appeal.
