Jeffrey Scott Wagner

Linn County - Oregon

Born: 12/4/60

Sentenced to death: 2/28/1986

Wagner pleaded guilty to the 1985 strangling of his 23-year-old girlfriend, Jeri Koenig, during a fight over the breakup of their relationship.

He was the first person sentenced to death in Oregon following the reinstatement of capital punishment, but the U.S. Supreme Court in 1989 overturned his sentence because jurors were not allowed to consider evidence that might cause them to spare his life. The ruling sent nearly two dozen Oregon Death Row inmates back for resentencing.

Interesting fact: Wagner used a papier-mache dummy in his cell in 1992 to trick prison officials while he hid for two days in the back of a truck that eventually took him out of the Oregon State Penitentiary. Salem police later arrested him trying to rob a sex video arcade.

Status: Life sentence.
