Associated Press
PORT ANGELES -- It has cost Clallam County about $1 million this year to re-try a man in the 1993 slaying of his wife and business partner at an exotic bird farm near Sequim.
The Peninsula Daily News reported that county commissioners face a budget emergency of nearly half a million dollars because of expenses related to the retrial of Darold Stenson.
The 61-year-old was found guilty last month of two counts of aggravated murder and will be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Stenson was sentenced to death after his first trial in 1994. It was overturned by the state Supreme Court and returned for a new trial in which the prosecutor did not seek the death penalty.
