Tough oversight promised at Kingman prison

New inmates - but not murderers - will start arriving this week

The private prison just outside of Kingman has resumed accepting inmates again, eight months after the escape of three inmates.More than 150 inmates convicted of violent crimes were transferred out of the prison in the weeks following the escape, and the Arizona Department of Corrections said it wouldn't send any new prisoners until significant changes in security were made by Management and Training Corporation.
