LIMA, Ohio (AP) - A new warden has been assigned to take over at an Ohio prison where a convicted school shooter and two other Ohio inmates managed to escape last September.

The state’s prisons department reassigned the warden at its Lima prison and demoted the deputy warden after the escape by Chardon High School shooter T.J. Lane and two other inmates.

An investigation revealed that the three inmates managed to get inside a prison maintenance area and spent several months building a makeshift ladder that they used in the escape.

The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction announced this past week that Ed Sheldon will be the new warden at the Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima.

Sheldon has spent the past three years at the state’s prison in Toledo.
