AZ Guards Rob and Kill

On February 16, 1995, police ar rested a retired cop and three Arizona prison guards in the robbery of an armored car and the killing of a Wells Fargo driver. On November 28, 1994, an armored car was hijacked and robbed with between $200,000 and $900,000 taken. The armored car's driver was found shot to death inside the vehicle.

Those arrested and charged in the robbery murder were William Ferguson, a former Phoenix policeman, James Greenham, who had worked as a prison guard at numerous Arizona DOC facilities, Timothy Ring and his wife Elvia Sotelo-Ring who both worked as guards at the Perryville prison complex west of Phoenix. FBI agents were quoted saying they had wiretap recordings where the defendants made incriminating statements implicating them in the robbery. They described the robbery as being "very professional." We wonder what Greenham and the Rings' opinions on prison reform and the death penalty are.
