Daniel and Carol Carlson are scheduled to be sentenced in the death of Daniel’s wife, Lisa.

The Kapowsin son and mother have pleaded guilty in the case, although they maintain their innocence.

Daniel Carlson has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder with a firearm enhancement. Carol Carlson has pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree assault and one count of sexually violating human remains.

It’s the second time they both have been convicted in shooting death of Lisa Ann Dahm Carlson, 27. A jury convicted Daniel Carlson and his mother, Carol Jean Carlson, in 2003 of first-degree murder in the shooting death.

The Carlsons were each sentenced to 37 years in prison.

Prosecutors said the two shot Lisa Ann Dahm Carlson three times, arranged her body in front of a television playing a pornographic video and ransacked the house to make it look like a burglary.

Prosecutors said the victim was planning to leave her husband and take their twin sons with her.

An appeals court later overturned the convictions, saying some of the evidence had been improperly admitted into the trial.

  1. Who has custody of Lisa and Daniel Carlson twin boys?

  2. Well Carol, you tried to make your daughter in law look like a bad mother and LOOK you are the one that is a FREAK….. your GROSS doing something like that to dead body . your a real weird -O . GOD will have the last say on you when you stand before him on your judgement day , you took away a Great mother and an over all Wonderful person , You are as nasty as the horrible thing you and your son did to her , you and your son don’t add up to a maggot , She was better than your entire family history . We all hope that you and your son have horrible night mares about what you did to that beautiful Woman and Great outstanding Mother , Something that you were never good at. Her children will also know what you did to their Mother.

  3. Patty, I would HOPE that no one on his side of the family NEVER get to see the 2 Boys but then thats just the way I am I have no mercy for people like them, they both knew what they were doing and they took away a daughter a mother a friend and alot more

  4. I don’t get it, so it was overturned but had plenty of other charges they could have imposed to keep them both in prison for a long time, Carol is the worst I hope she never gets to see those kids and she has to walk around washington state good luck with that, they better make sure she registers as the sex offender that she is. If I lived by her i would put up posters of her everywhere for an every day reminder who and what she is. She is a killer and should not be walking around anyone. That wonderful mother got no justice in the end.

  5. The dead mom was a no odd cheating whore, good riddance

  6. The dead mom was a no good cheating whore, good riddance

  7. per last sentence in the article,

    “The 7-year-old boys are being reared by Lisa Carlson’s sister”.
