Suspect is released from hospital; will be extradited

SEATTLE — The man accused of strangling his grandparents in Renton has been released from a Portland hospital and will be returned to Washington state to face prosecution.

Michael Chadd Boysen was treated for self-inflicted cuts after his arrest March 12 at a Lincoln City motel.

KIRO-FM reports Boysen is being held in the Multnomah County Jail and has waived extradition.

Authorities say he killed 82-year-old Robert R. Taylor and 80-year-old Norma J. Taylor after they picked him up from prison on March 8 and held a welcome home party for him at their home.

A spokesman with the Washington Department of Corrections says Boysen is expected to be transferred to a corrections facility in Shelton by Friday.

He'll likely be held there while facing new criminal charges.
