Fugitive Louisiana inmate is shot dead in police stand off

A fugitive Louisiana inmate took an assistant warden's teenage step-daughter hostage and fatally stabbed her before he was shot dead in a standoff with police.

Amanda Leigh Carney, 19, was killed near the David Wade Correctional Center in Homer on Thursday afternoon by escaped inmate Deltra Henderson.

The 39-year-old inmate was reported missing from the prison at about 1.40pm after he walked away from his work assignment.

Amanda, who is the step-daughter of assistant warden James Arnold, was abducted by the inmate.

It seems weird that there were homes on the prison grounds. That doesn't sound safe to me.
