    Michael Spencer Washington, Jr. - Oregon Death Row


    Mohammed Khalifa Jabbie




    Facts of the Crime:

    A Clackamas County jury decided that Mike Spencer Washington, Jr. should be put to death for killing a witness who testified against him. Washington assaulted Mohamed Jabbie in July 2004 and shot him to death a few months later, after Jabbie appeared before a Multnomah County grand jury. Jurors found Washington guilty on April 23, 2004. Jabbie, 33, a native of Sierra Leone, legally immigrated to the United States in 1996 to escape civil war in his home county, one of the poorest in Africa. He worked as a medical transport assistant. Relatives described him as a devoted Muslim who loved soccer and reggae music. A month after Jabbie died, his girlfriend gave birth to their only child, a daughter.

    Jabbie, 33, crossed Washington's path after he started dating Shirleen Stafford, Washington's longtime girlfriend, in early 2004. In July of that year, Washington broke into Stafford's house and beat Jabbie. Jabbie testified about the assault before a Multnomah County grand jury on September 23, 2004. The next night, Washington, who lived in Gresham, walked into Jabbie's apartment near Clackamas Town Center and shot him seven times. Killing Jabbie was meant to keep Washington out of jail and serve as payback for Jabbie's relationship with Stafford, prosecutors said. The case against Washington relied heavily on Stafford's testimony and cell phone records, which mirrored Stafford's account. Stafford was indicted on murder charges but agreed to testify in return for a reduced sentence.

    Washington was sentenced to death on May 10, 2010.

    Gresham man gets death penalty for killing witness

    A Clackamas County jury decided today that Mike Spencer Washington Jr. should be put to death for killing a witness who testified against him.

    Washington, who did not speak at Monday's hearing, will be formally sentenced May 17.

    Washington assaulted Mohamed Jabbie in July 2004 and shot him to death a few months later, after Jabbie appeared before a Multnomah County grand jury. Jurors found Washington guilty on April 23.

    Justices uphold death sentence for Gresham man

    The Oregon Supreme Court upheld the death sentence for a Gresham man convicted of a 2004 murder in Clackamas County.

    The court, in an opinion released Thursday, rejected all 22 arguments brought on appeal by Michael Spencer Washington Jr. He was convicted in 2010 for the aggravated murder of Mohamed Jabbie, 33, who had dated Washington's long-time girlfriend and who had testified against him in connection with an assault.

    Washington, now 41, is among 33 men and one woman who are on death row at the Oregon State Penitentiary, according to a Department of Corrections list.

    Among the objections raised by Washington were his having to wear a stun device while in the courtroom, the seating of an anonymous jury, and Oregon's use of a three-drug protocol for lethal injection.

    But Justice Jack Landau, writing for the court, dismissed the latter objection as premature. Like other death sentences, Washington's case will undergo further review at several levels first.

    "We agree with the state that the specific method of defendant's execution as opposed to the death sentence itself is not ripe for consideration by this court," he wrote.

    Landau also said that security measures were justified by Washington's history of violence, his aggressiveness toward witnesses, and his membership in a gang. Juror names were disclosed to Washington's lawyers, but jurors were referred to in the courtroom only by numbers.

    Some gang members attended Washington's trial, during which several previous victims testified.

    Key testimony in the 2010 trial was provided by Shirleen Stafford, Washington's girlfriend, who initially was charged as an accomplice in the murder. The charge was reduced to hindering prosecution.

    Washington beat Jabbie at Stafford's home on July 4, 2004. The day after Jabbie testified to a grand jury, Jabbie was shot by Washington in the chest seven times on Sept. 24, 2004, in Jabbie's apartment as Stafford stepped in and out. His body was discovered by police a few days later.

    However, it was only in 2007 that Clackamas County officials were able to gather enough evidence to indict Washington and Stafford.
