Washington killing suspect to be extradited

SEATTLE — Washington authorities plan to extradite a man caught in Oregon who is suspected of killing his grandparents after they picked him up from prison and hosted a welcome home party for him.

King County prosecutors in Seattle expect to file charges against Michael Chadd Boysen, spokesman Dan Donohoe said Wednesday.

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.
