On Wednesday, a judge turned down an attempted stay of execution for Cal Coburn Brown, a man convicted of the 1991 rape, torture and murder of Holly Washa, 22, of Burien.

Brown carjacked Washa, then held her against her will for two days in a SeaTac motel, raping and torturing her before slashing her throat.

According to court documents, Brown suffered from bi-polar disorder, but has been medicated since 1994.

Barring any other last-minute decisions, Brown will be executed via lethal injection just after midnight Friday at Walla Walla State Penitentiary.

He will be the first King County prisoner put to death since 1993, with the state of Washington reinstated the death penalty.
