DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- The Department of Corrections has renamed the warden's administration building at the state prison to honor slain corrections officer Stephen R. Anderson.
Anderson died June 15, 2007 after a prison inmate he escorted to a medical appointment escaped and shot Anderson with his own gun. Curtis Allgier has been charged with capital murder for the crime.
At a dedication ceremony Thursday, Anderson's son Shawn, also an officer, said his father was a hard-working, humble man who sought to do what was right.
In the building's lobby is a lighted glass cabinet that holds photos and other personal items to memorialize Anderson's life.
