Oregon Death Penalty
File--In this May 13, 2011, file photo taken from a video monitor in Salem, Ore., convicted killer Gary Haugen speaks during a hearing where a judge considered the prosecutors' request to issue a death warrant in the case of the 49-year-old inmate who has asked to waive remaining appeals and proceed with his execution by lethal injection. The Oregon Supreme Court will hear arguments Thursday, March 14, 2013, from lawyers for Haugen and Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber--a lower court sided with Haugen, who says Kitzhaber overstepped his authority when he issued a temporary reprieve two weeks before Haugen was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection.(AP Photo/Don Ryan)
