PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The ex-husband of a woman killed by Oregon
death row inmate Gary Haugen calls Gov. John Kitzhaber a coward for

ex-wife, Mary Archer, was raped and beaten to death. Pratt and his
daughter, Kathy Pratt, tell KGW that the governor dismissed the law
and the will of the people last week when he gave Haugen a
reprieve. Ard Pratt says the governor should have put his personal
feelings aside.
