The lawsuit claims that numerous glaring and egregious security errors and omissions of the Defendants MTC and the State/ADC permitted three dangerous inmates to escape the Arizona State Prison in Kingman, Arizona (ASP-Kingman) on July 30, 2010, and led to the gruesome murders of the Oklahoma couple on August 2, 2010.

Untrained and Incompetent MTC personnel. Untrained and Incompetent State Monitors. Failure to Notify Public of Change in Prison Population. Continuing Deficiencies and a History of Contract Non-Compliance.

"The tragic deaths of Gary and Linda Haas were 100% preventable.
