Washington killing suspect to be extradited

Boysen, 26, is accused of killing Robert R. Taylor, 82, and Norma J. Taylor, 80, after they welcomed him to their Renton home after his release from prison Friday.

He is held on a no-bail warrant from the Washington Department of Corrections for violating terms of his release, Donohoe said. Boysen remains at Legacy Emmanuel Medical Center in Portland, Ore., in serious condition, spokeswoman Amber Shoebridge said Wednesday.

He had been in critical condition after he was found with self-inflicted cuts when police entered the motel room Tuesday to arrest him.

Investigators don’t know why he went to Lincoln City, said King County sheriff’s Sergeant Cindy West. They also don’t know what may have motivated him to kill his grandparents. They aren’t saying exactly how the two were killed, except they weren’t shot.
