A May 5, 2014, photo provided by the New York State Department of Corrections shows Daniel St. Hubert. A man believed to have stabbed a 6-year-old boy to death and critically injured a 7-year-old girl in a knife attack in a New York public housing building elevator that didn't have security cameras was arrested Wednesday, police said. St. Hubert was picked up just after 8 p.m. in a residential neighborhood in Queens in connection with the death of Prince Joshua Avitto and the injuring of Mikayla Capers days earlier in Brooklyn, authorities said. No details were provided on how St. Hubert, 27, was captured. (AP Photo/New York State Department of Corrections)

This December 15, 2010 photo provided by the New York State Department of Correctional Services shows Bradley Ballard in New York. In September of 2014, Ballard, 39, who was mentally ill and an inmate at the Rikers Island jail in New York, died a gruesome death there after being locked alone in his cell for seven days. Documents obtained by The Associated Press show Ballard was checked on dozens of times in his cell before he was rushed to a hospital, where he died hours later. Ballard, found naked, covered in feces with a rubber band tied around his badly infected genitals, was jailed in a similar mental health unit at Rikers Island where another mentally ill inmate died in a 101-degree cell in February.
