Prison maintenance supervisor stabbed by inmate

PENDLETON, Ind. (AP) – Authorities say a prison maintenance supervisor was stabbed in the leg and lower body by a convicted murderer.

A spokesman for the Pendleton Correctional Facility says Joseph Neill suffered 10 puncture wounds in the attack Monday morning. He was treated at a hospital in Anderson and returned to work later in the day.

Prison spokesman Neil Potter says 49-year-old Jeffrey Treadway used a “homemade weapon” to stab Neill. Treadway was transferred to another maximum-security facility.

Potter says Treadway stabbed Neill because Neill had filed a disciplinary report against Treadway for theft.
