Man pleads guilty to murder for Oregon weighmaster’s death


PORTLAND, Ore. — A man convicted of shooting at Los Angeles police in 2014 has pleaded guilty to killing an Oregon weighmaster months before the California shootout.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports 44-year-old Dirck White on Wednesday pleaded guilty to murder for the death of 47-year-old Grady Waxenfelter in February 2014.

According to court documents, White fatally shot the Clackamas County assistant weighmaster during a traffic stop near Boring.

White is expected to be sentenced next week.

White is serving up to life in prison in California from a shootout with police in Hollywood in November 2014. A Los Angeles County jury convicted White of multiple felony charges in May 2016.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office says White is also a suspect in a child rape investigation in Pierce County, Washington.
