Report: Monroe Inmate Confessed To Killing Corrections Officer

MONROE, Wash. (AP) - A Monroe state Reformatory inmate has reportedly confessed to killing Correctional Officer Jayme Biendl in the prison chapel.

The 52-year-old says he strangled Biendl Jan. 29 because he was angry with how she has spoken to him a few minutes earlier.
