Prison inmate is fatally stabbed
Corrections officials say an inmate at a southeast Oklahoma prison was stabbed to death by three other inmates. Mack Alford Correctional Center warden's assistant Trent Griffin said Deshawn Reed, 23, was pronounced dead shortly after the attack Thursday. Griffin said three inmates used homemade knives to attack Reed in a cell. The prison was on lockdown status until further notice, he said. The state Corrections Department's Internal Affairs Division is investigating the death. Reed had been serving a 22-year prison sentence for a first-degree manslaughter conviction out of Tulsa County. He was scheduled to be released from prison in 2032.
