CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) – The man suspected of killing Colorado’s prisons chief threatened to kill a guard while he was in prison, according to state records.

It’s just one episode in a long history of misconduct behind bars for Evan Spencer Ebel, who died after a shootout with Texas authorities last week.

Within nine months of entering prison in 2005, Ebel misbehaved so badly he was placed in solitary confinement. He spent much time there because of continued threats and attacks against prison workers and other inmates.

The new information comes from Ebel’s prison record, which was released to The Associated Press on Thursday after an open records request.
