Biendl's killer sentenced to death
EVERETT — A Snohomish County jury recommended the death penalty for convicted murderer Byron Scherf, 54.
Scherf was found guilty of strangling Monroe prison corrections officer Jayme Biendl, 34, the night of Jan. 29, 2011.
Scherf is a convicted rapist and was serving a life sentence in the Monroe Correctional Complex when he murdered Biendl.
Scherf becomes the ninth person in the state to receive a death sentence from a jury, according to the Herald.
It will be several years before he is actually put to death as state law requires significant scrutiny and review of the decision before a death sentence can be carried out.
The Herald reported that Scherf was moved last week to the State Penitentiary in Walla Walla.
