PM: Ridgway Admits 49th Murder

Green River Killer Gary Ridgway stands to be escorted out following his arraignment on charges of murder in the 1982 death of Rebecca "Becky" Marrero at the King County Regional Justice Center in Kent., Wash., today. Ridgway already confessed to killing Marrero as part of a 2003 plea deal that spared him the death penalty. Story here. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)

Question: Can the state of Washington ever execute a person again when Gary Ridgway killed at least 49 people without being put down?
