Byron Scherf found guilty in murder of prison guard Jayme Biendl

scherfEVERETT, Wash. – Byron Scherf was found guilty in the murder of prison guard Jayme Biendl.

Scherf was accused of attacking and killing Biendl in the Monroe prison chapel in January 2011. In court on Wednesday, jurors were shown video interviews of Scherf confessing to the crime. His legal team fought to keep the video out of court, hoping to disprove that the crime was premeditated.

The convicted rapist was serving a life sentence at the time Biendl was killed.
