Mark was sentenced to death for participating in the robbery and murder of 65-year-old John Wallace Ruffner, in his apartment in Tualatin, Oregon, on September 19, 1985.  Mark’s partner-in-crime, Donald E, Cornell, who was released in 2011, after serving nearly 26 years in prison.  Mark attempted to have his sentence overturned, arguing that Donald’s lesser sentence proved that the death penalty was arbitrarily applied.  His request was ultimately denied.

 

Until his death, Mark was the oldest death row inmate in the state.  He spent the last 17 years of his life on Oregon’s death row.  Please pray for the family of Mark.  Please pray for the family of John Ruffner.
