Correctional Officer Amanda Baker succumbed to injuries sustained two days earlier when she was attacked by a 15-year-old inmate in the Scotts Bluff County Juvenile Detention Center.

The inmate, who was awaiting trial on an armed robbery charge, attacked and strangled Officer Baker after she entered his cell at approximately 2:00 am. She was transported to Regional West Medical Center where she was pronounced brain dead. She was kept on life support so her organs could be donated.

Officer Baker had served with the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center for just over 1-1/2 years. She is survived by her son.
