SALEM -- Death row inmate Gary Haugen was declared legally sane today and now faces a tentative Dec. 6 execution date.
Marion County Circuit Judge Joseph Guimond said he expects to sign a death warrant soon.
Haugen, 49, was in court this morning to answer a series of questions from Guimond to determine whether he is mentally competent to drop his appeals.
The judge earlier found that the twice-convicted murderer is fit to assist in his defense and understands why he faces execution.
