DA Mike Schmidt announces murder charge for Keffer White

PORTLAND, Oregon – Today Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that Keffer James White, 29, was indicted by a Multnomah County grand jury for Murder in the Second Degree, Attempted Murder in the First Degree, and Assault in the Second Degree. 

The charges stem from an alleged attack on June 25. One of the two victims of the attack, Donald Pierce, 82, subsequently died as a result of his injuries. See previously released information here. 

Witnesses reported that White stated he was going to kill the victims during the attack. White is currently in custody without bail.  

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. White is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
