Oregon Supreme Court overturned the death sentence of serial killer Dayton Rogers once again

The Oregon Supreme Court overturned the death sentence of notorious serial killer Dayton Leroy Rogers on Friday, citing its own historic ruling last month that applied the state's new aggravated murder statute to the case of another condemned man.

Rogers, 68, will be sentenced for the fifth time in Oregon after a hearing by legal experts. Few death row prisoners in Portland have been overturned as many times as Roger, who is serving time at Two Rivers Correctional Institution in Umatilla.
