He was disciplined in prison for fights and threatening people. He was eventually transferred to Colorado under the interstate compact.
While in Colorado, Lust apparently murdered Ronald Ferguson, a prisoner at a Canon City, Colorado prison, on November 18, 2009. Authorities refused to disclose the cause of death or motive, but acknowledged that Lust had been arrested for the murder and transferred to another prison. Ferguson was serving a 25-year sentence for 1996 kidnapping and sexual assault convictions out of Arapahoe County, Colorado.
