Posted on 19th December 2013 at 18:26

It’s now being reported that John Wayne Thomson has been sentenced to death for the August, 2006 murder of Charles Hedlund of Lucerne Valley, California. The Daily News reports on this morning’s verdict, which came after about a week of delberation by the jury that found Thomson guilty on all counts connected to the death of Hedlund. Thomson fatally stabbed Hedlund, then dumped the body in a ditch, at the end of a crime spree that started in Washington. He’s also the prime suspect in the July, 2006, murder of Lori Hamm of Longview. Cowlitz County Prosecutor Sue Baur has indicated that she plans to bring Thomson back to this area to stand trial, after the proceedings in Calfornia had concluded.
