A North Dakota prison guard was fired over the suicide of a man who was serving life sentences for killing four people.
Deandre Adams violated corrections policy in failing to adequately check on Chad Isaak, according to a termination letter from the warden at North Dakota State Penitentiary.
Adams was fired Thursday.
"Your credibility, professionalism, and the trust I had in you as a sergeant are irreparably damaged," Sayler wrote.
"This level of trust, which is expected of every team member, is something I no longer have in you, due to your misconduct."

An investigative report from the state Highway Patrol released last month found that Adams said he failed to adequately check on Isaak twice.

Adams knew inmates were not allowed to cover their cell windows, but allowed it, as a "courtesy in case they were naked in their cells," the report said.
"He stated they could enforce it but that they would just get more window coverings."
