      [The Oregonian]

      People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking a state prison
      superintendent to no longer allow "fried chicken" killer Tremayne
      Durham to eat meat, saying he "should be prevented from contributing
      to any more suffering and death - including the kind associated with
      eating meat and dairy products."

      PETA sent a letter this morning to Nancy Howton, the superintendent of
      Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, where Durham will
      be processed over the next several weeks before being assigned to
      another prison.

      Durham, who killed Gresham man Adam Calbreath over his frustration
      with a deal to buy an ice-cream truck gone sour, has become known
      through news stories around the globe because he received KFC fried
      chicken, Popeyes chicken, lasagna, calazones and ice cream as part of
      his plea deal for aggravated murder. He was sentenced in Multnomah
      County earlier this week to life in prison with the possibility of
      release after 30 years.
      ...
      "...we ask that you deny Durham the opportunity to participate in
      further violence by putting him on a vegetarian diet." The letter also
      takes issue with KFC and the wide-scale raising of poultry. "Millions
      of senseless killings such as the one committed by Durham are carried
      out every day for nothing more than a fleeting taste for flesh," the
      letter reads. "In slaughterhouses, chickens and turkeys routinely have
      their throats cut..."
