EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Victims connected to a 1980 triple homicide are fighting to keep one of the killers in prison.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1NZIam0 ) that Sidney Oie for years has been writing the state asking that convicted murderers Timothy Pauley and Scott Smith never be released. The men killed three people and injured two in a tavern Oie owned near SeaTac.

Oie joined other victims and their families at an Indeterminate Sentence Review Board meeting on Dec. 14 in Olympia to oppose Pauley’s release. She als attended a second meeting weeks later in Monroe.

Pauley pleaded guilty in 1981 to three counts of first-degree murder. His mandatory minimum was a little over 33 years, which he has served. He still faces life as his possible maximum. The board must decide if they will extend his sentence or start parole proceedings.
