Default Wade, LA negro inmate killed warden's stepdaughter (WF, 19); inmate killed in standoff


Police: Wade inmate killed warden's stepdaughter; inmate killed in standoff
Updated 1:07 p.m. CT July 28, 2017

HOMER The victim killed Thursday by an inmate who escaped from the David Wade Correctional Center was 19-year-old Amanda Carney, authorities said Friday.

Both State Police Col. Kevin Reeves and the Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office identified the victim.

Both also said Carney was the stepdaughter of an assistant warden at the state prison. Neither identified the assistant warden.

Authorities have said the slaying occurred after an inmate, Deltra Henderson, escaped from the David Wade Correctional Center in Claiborne Parish. Henderson died later in a shootout with law-enforcement authorities.

Carney has been variously described as the stepdaughter of an assistant warden and as the daughter of a woman who lives with the assistant warden. The relationships were not immediately clear.

The prison is situated on Bell Hill Road just off Louisiana 520.
