Witnesses Approved For Execution At Walla Walla

WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - Four members of a murdered woman's family are signed up to witness her killer's death at next month's scheduled execution at the Washington state Penitentiary.

The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin reports the father, brother and two sisters of Holly Washa are among 12 witnesses approved by the state to attend the execution of Cal Coburn Brown.

The execution Sept. 10 would be the first in Washington since 2001, when convicted murdered James Elledge was put to death by lethal injection.

Other witnesses for Brown's death will be King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg and seven members of the media.

Brown was convicted of raping, torturing and killing the 22-year-old Washa in 1991 in a Sea-Tac hotel room.
