Detroit — Two federal prison inmates and the estate of a third are suing the government, claiming officials at a Monroe County lockup failed to prevent a 2019 attack on the sex offenders, one of whom was stomped and stabbed to death.
Christian Maire, Michal Figura and Craig Evans were attacked in January 2019 in the East Unit of The Federal Correctional Institution, Milan. Maire was stomped and stabbed repeatedly with a shank before being thrown down a flight of stairs, prosecutors said.
Figura and Evans survived the attack, although the lawsuit, which does not specify monetary damages sought, claims they suffered psychological damage.
Alex “Sniper” Castro, 39; Jason “J” Kechego, 38, and Adam “Creeper” Wright, 39, face first-degree premeditated murder charges in connection with Maire’s death. A pretrial conference is scheduled for Jan. 28.
“The East Unit at FDC Milan, was known, or should have been known, by defendant (Board of Prisons’) agents and employees, as a dangerous place for sex offenders,” the six-page lawsuit says.
Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Justin Long declined to comment.
“We do not comment on pending litigation,” he said in an email.
