Ex - Con Charged in Francke Murder

Frank E. Gable has been charged with murder in connection with the killing of Oregon DOC Director Michael Francke. The ex-con Gable said: "I don't know how I first got implicated, but I'm real scared it's going to end in me getting (convicted) for something I ain't did."

Gable came to the attention of Portland police after a county jail inmate serving time with the ex-con said Gable had confessed to him. Gable was in the county jail for assaulting his wife, and was to be released in two more days. Francke was allegedly killed during a car burglary.
