A prison-supply supervisor was beaten to death Thursday, apparently by a pipe-wielding inmate, prompting a lockdown at Stateville Correctional Center, a Corrections Department spokesman said. The victim was identified as Suon Troeung, a prison employee since 1978 and former captain in the Cambodian army who fled Southeast Asia in 1975.
