Prisoners' Dilemma
 
 
On February 18, 2010, inmate Bronson Nunuha (left inset), 26, who was serving a five-year sentence for burglary and property damage at the Saguaro Correctional Center, and was nine months away from the end of his sentence, was found murdered after a prison employee left the cell doors open. Nunuha was stabbed 140 times with two different weapons, and had the name of a gang carved in his chest. Two other inmates, Miti Maugaotega Jr. (right inset), 26, and Micah Kanahele, 31, are being charged with the murder. They were serving life sentences for murder and other violent crimes. Hawaii has no death penalty. The prison, however, was run for the State of Hawaii in Arizona by a consultant. If convicted in Pinal County Superior Court the men could face the death penalty. Nunuha's family is suing the State of Hawaii saying that he is dead because officials failed to return him to Hawaii to serve the last year of his sentence, as is required by Hawaiian law.
