Stressla Lynn Johnson

Multnomah County - Oregon

Born: 4/9/57

Sentenced to death: 3/28/1989

Johnson was convicted of strangling Beverly Wilder, 33, and Bobbie Jean Johnson, 51, no relation, with telephone cords after sexually assaulting them. The killings occurred about seven months apart in 1987.

Johnson received a death sentence for the killing of Wilder. The Supreme Court later overturned his conviction and death sentence, saying evidence linking him to the other murder was improperly admitted at trial.

Interesting fact: Johnson sued Multnomah County for $10,000 in 1991, claiming a guard had violated his civil rights by slamming his head against a wall. A U.S. magistrate judge dismissed his suit in 1993.

Status: Life sentence.
