Memorial run Sunday for slain corrections officer

Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit a foundation that helps families and police cope with trauma

MONROE — The course for the Jayme Biendl Memorial Run appropriately winds past the granite steps and tall columns leading into the Washington State Reformatory.

It should give those taking part in the second annual fundraiser a time to reflect.

"I heard a lot of people say they really liked the course last year and it was great to honor Jayme," said detective Sgt. Cindy Chessie of the Monroe Police Department.

Biendl, 34, died in the line of duty Jan. 29, 2011. She was found strangled at her post in the prison chapel after her shift had ended. Inmate Byron Scherf, 54, is charged with aggravated first-degree murder and could face the death penalty. His trial is scheduled to begin in March.

As the second anniversary of her death approaches, the run is meant to celebrate the friend and co-worker Biendl was to many people, as well as her public service.
