Ard Pratt is a former Multnomah County sheriff's deputy who responded to the scene in 1981 after his ex-wife, Mary Archer, was raped and beaten to death.
Pratt and his daughter, Kathy Pratt, told KGW Tuesday that the governor dismissed the law and the will of the people last week when he gave Haugen a reprieve. Ard Pratt says the governor should have put his personal feelings aside.
Haugen was serving a life sentence for killing Mary Archer when he killed another inmate in prison and was sentenced to death.
Haugen also slammed Kitzhaber for stopping the execution, which had been set for Dec. 6.
