Correctional Officer Louis Jewett was succumbed to stab wounds sustained 28 days earlier when he was attacked while attempting to prevent two inmates from stabbing a third inmate. The third inmate was stabbed to death during the incident.

Both inmates were convicted of two counts of first degree murder. One was sentenced to two life terms to run consecutively with another life term he was serving. The other inmate was sentenced to death. In 1986 Governor Toney Anaya commuted his sentence to life.

Officer Jewett had served with the New Mexico Corrections Department for only five months. He was survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.
