Granite, OK – Convicted Okla. sheriff killer posts on Facebook
GRANITE, Okla. (AP) A man serving 30 years in prison for the murder of an Oklahoma county sheriff has been moved to solitary confinement in a different prison after he used a smuggled-in cell phone to post pictures and comments on Facebook.
State prison officials told The Oklahoman that 32-year-old Justin Lee Walker was moved Wednesday from the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite to the State Penitentiary in McAlester after the page was discovered. The photos have been removed from the social networking site.
Corrections Department spokesman Jerry Massie says officials also found marijuana in Walker's cell and that he is now segregated from other inmates.
Massie says Walker could face felony charges.
Walker pleaded no contest in 2006 to second-degree murder in the 2001 shooting death of Pawnee County Sheriff Dwight Woodrell.
