According to the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal, Matt was such a troublesome inmate that he was kept under heavy security and separate from other inmates during his 2008 trial. In case he became unruly, a state trooper who was part of the police detail watching him kept a small device capable of delivering a “disabling” shock.

Sweat had been at the prison since 2003. Matt arrived in 2008, the police said.

The prison houses about 3,000 inmates, according to the village of Dannemora’s Web site.
