    Death Row inmate says his lawyers botched his defense

    By Kathleen Glanville
    The Oregonian

    An Oregon Death Row inmate convicted in the 1988 shotgun killings of two German tourists claims that he deserves a new trial because his attorneys so thoroughly botched his defense.

    Jeffery Ray Williams claims his original attorneys failed to present evidence that his co-defendant, David Lynn Simonsen, had taken sole responsibility for shooting Una Tuxen and Katrin Reith.

    The attorneys also failed to read all the police reports and put on a forensic expert who backed up the prosecutor's interpretation of the evidence.

    Williams, one of 32 Oregon inmates with death sentences, made his claims in an appeal filed recently in U.S. District Court in Portland.

    Williams is in the last phase of the lengthy capital appeals process. His is the farthest along of all Oregon death penalty appeals, but likely years from completion.

    Williams also accuses prosecutors of misconduct, saying they hid plea bargains with key witnesses and failed to tell Williams' lawyers that Simonsen's recent sexual relationship with his biological mother may have triggered the killings.

    Williams also argues that Oregon's death penalty law is unconstitutional in several ways. For example, the state's method of lethal injection lacks so many safeguards that it violates the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment, the appeal claims.

    "As it now stands, the State of Oregon plans to execute Mr. Williams using drugs and procedures that 17 states have recognized as inhumane to end the life of cats and dogs," the appeal says.

    Death row inmate dies in infirmary at Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem

    A death row inmate died Monday night at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem.

    Jeffrey R. Williams, died in the infirmary while on end-of-life care, according to Oregon Department of Corrections officials. Williams, 59, had been in the department's custody since May 4, 1989.

    Williams' next of kin and the Oregon State Police have been notified, DOC officials said.

    Williams, of Ashland, and co-defendant David Simonsen, of Medford, were sentenced to death for killing two German tourists at a remote spot near Bandon.

    According to trial testimony, Simonsen and Williams picked up the two women hitchhiking on U.S. Highway 101 near the California state line in 1988 and drove them to a remote spot outside Bandon.

    There, Williams handed a shotgun to Simonsen and told him to kill the women. Simonsen shot them in the face.

    Their bodies were found on a secluded logging road outside Coquille. They had been raped, bound together with rope and killed by shotgun blasts to the head.

    The victims, Unna Tuxen, 24, of Osnabruck, and Kathrine Reith, 22, of Wattenscheid, were on vacation from the university in Marburg, Germany.

    Williams' was convicted of aggravated murder, murder and kidnapping crimes. Simonsen remains on death row at the Oregon State Penitentiary custody.

    Death row inmate Jeffrey Williams, 59, died Monday night at the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem.
    Oregon has not had an execution since 1997, and all potential executions have been subject to a moratorium put in place in 2011 by then-Gov. John Kitzhaber.

    After taking office, Gov. Kate Brown upheld the moratorium and made her personal opposition to the death penalty clear.

    Oregon has 29 inmates held under the death sentence. Of those, 27 are housed on the death row unit at Oregon State Penitentiary.

    An uninformed opponent is a dangerous opponent.
