Four Pasquotank inmates charged with 1st degree murder”

Justin Smith, a 35-year-old correctional officer and Veronica Darden, a 50-year-old correction enterprises manager, were identified as the two people killed.

At a news conference Friday, officials said 29-year-old Wisezah Buckman, 33-year-old Seth J. Frazier, 28-year-old Mikel Brady, and 30-year-old Johnathan M. Monk are all charged with two counts of first-degree murder. However, no inmates left the prison yard. Four inmates were charged with first-degree murder, the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office announced.

The inmates allegedly started a fire at a sewing plant inside the Pasquotank Correctional Facility in Elizabeth City on October 12, prison spokesman Keith Acree said in a statement Thursday.

Buckman, of Charlotte, was convicted of murder after fatally shooting one co-worker and wounding another in a 2014 dispute. Monk - a former Fort Bragg soldier - was doing time for slashing his supervisor's wife with a knife.

Frazier was convicted most recently of burglary and possession of firearm by a felon in 2011.

All four have been transferred to maximum-security prisons near Raleigh. Darden supervised inmates at the Specialty Sewing Plant for the last 10 years and previously worked as a correctional officer.

The department said it would review the backgrounds of the 2,300 inmates working at behind-bars tasks such as pressing license plates, washing clothes for customers including U.S. Veterans Affairs hospitals and growing and packaging vegetables.

The state Department of Public Safety also says until a statewide review can be completed, any inmate convicted of "assaultive crimes" won't be allowed to participate in Correction Enterprises operations that use cutting or impact tools.

Organize an advisory committee to consider and recommend additional technology and individual devices to enhance the safety and security of prison and Correction Enterprises staff, prison facilities and plant operations.
