A prisoner kidnapped and murdered the teenage daughter of the assistant warden at David Wade Correctional Center in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana last week.

Deltra Henderson, 39, walked away from his prison assignment, stole a care and in the process kidnapped Amanda Carney, 18. Her body was found near the crashed car. They believe that Ms. Carney was stabbed to death.

Henderson then stole a second car, crashed it too, and then went into a home near the prison. He found gun inside and barricaded himself in the house. He then engaged in a gunfight with responding prison staff. His body was found inside the house before the local constabulary could respond to the scene.

Henderson had been a guest of the state since 2001, doing a 30-year stretch for drugs and armed robbery. He had a prior for armed robbery in which a woman and a 14-year old girl were wounded.

In 2015 he petitioned the court for a reduced sentence because he was turning his life around and was remorseful for his crimes. I don't know what the outcome of that petition was. I guess it doesn't matter now and the POS is dead.
