Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility
An inmate accused in the 2002 slaying of a prison worker will be placed on trial and prosecutors will seek the death penalty after a judge Tuesday allowed the suspect to withdraw his guilty plea.
The female corrections officer killed at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Ordway last week was stabbed to death with a kitchen knife.
The death of a correctional officer who was killed in an assault involving an inmate drives home that there aren’t enough people like her, Gov. John Hickenlooper said at a public memorial service Monday.
A guard killed inside prison walls may have been targeted by an inmate who knew her from years ago.
The suspect in the murder of a state prison guard is a convicted kidnapper and sex offender.
One staffer is dead and another was seriously injured after a disturbance at a Colorado prison Monday morning.
