Warden, chief of security at escapees' prison resign

The warden and chief of security at the Kingman prison where three prisoners escaped last month have resigned.

A spokesman for the private prison confirmed Saturday that Warden Lori Lieder and her chief of security, who he didn't name, resigned earlier this week.

Carl Stuart, a spokesman for Management and Training Corp., based in Centerville, Utah which operates the medium security prison, said he couldn't provide additional information.

Meanwhile, authorities continue to search for escaped Arizona prison inmate John McCluskey and accomplice Casslyn Welch. They are suspected to be in western Montana, near the Canadian border, according to the US Marshals Service.
