▶️ 5 things to know Wednesday: Brown commutes Oregon death row sentences

Oregon Governor Kate Brown is commuting the sentences of 17 people on the state’s death row, effective on Wednesday. Those inmates will now spend the rest of their lives in prison without the possibility of parole.

The decision is drawing rebuke from the Republican leaders of the Oregon House and Senate, both of whom are from Central Oregon.

One of those whose death sentences will be commuted will be that of Randy Lee Guzek, 53. He was convicted in 1988 of the murders of a Terrebonne couple a year earlier. His case went through multiple sentencing phase trials.
