Prosecutor Miller Says Deal Expires at End of Day

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A man about to go on trial for first-degree aggravated murder has turned down an offer that would spare him from spending the rest of his life in prison.

Kennewick police arrested Grant Scantling, 42, in March. Detectives say he shot the roommate of his former fiance' out of jealousy.

Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller says in exchange for a guilty plea he would have dropped the aggravated murder factor, which carries a mandatory life prison term without a chance of parole.

Miller in court Wednesday morning told Superior Court Judge Robert Swisher his offer expires at the end of the day.
