Oklahoma Mother Files $10 Million Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Prison
The mother of a man from Tecumseh, Oklahoma has filed a $10 million lawsuit against a prison corporation and the state in the death of her son.
Her son and his wife were vacationing in New Mexico when they were killed by two prisoners who had escaped from an Arizona prison. The lawsuit was filed against the company operating the private prison, Management & Training Corporation of Delaware, and claims the state failed to maintain the inmates and properly train the employees.
An alarm sounded on July 30th when the two men cut through one of the security fences, but the correction officers failed to investigate. The couple’s bodies were found on August 4th in their burned out camper.
