2 Inmates Dead After Nebraska Regains Control of Prison

Two inmates were found dead Monday at a maximum security prison in southeast Nebraska after officials regained control of the facility. According to the state Department of Correctional Services, inmates took control of at least part of the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution Sunday during an incident when two staff members and two inmates were injured. James Foster, a department spokesman, said in a statement that staff members were attempting to break up a large gathering of inmates in front of a housing unit when the disturbance began. The Lincoln Journal Star reported that smoke rose from two housing units on Sunday and driveways to the prison were blocked.
