SEATTLE -- A Washington state man who killed his grandparents with a shoelace after they threw him a party to welcome him home from prison has entered a modified guilty plea to charges of aggravated first-degree murder.
Michael Chadd Boysen faces life in prison without the possibility of release when he’s sentenced Oct. 18. He admitted Friday in King County Superior Court that a jury likely would convict him in the March 9 strangulation deaths of 82-year-old Robert Taylor and 80-year-old Norma Taylor at their Renton home.
Boysen was arrested three days later after a standoff at a Lincoln City, Ore., motel. Boysen served time in prison for attempted burglary. His grandparents picked him up at the Monroe Correctional Complex and held a party for him that night.
