Default 1975 BC Pen Hostage Crisis

Does anyone remember anything about this.
The leader of the riots then Hostage taking.
The death of Mary Steinhauser.

Please if any info on this it would be appreciated. I can't remember the Leaders name. I'll look it up in the news archive but thought this might be faster..

Off the top of my head this is what I remember:
There were three inmates that were being taken back to solitary and they took fifteen people hostage. One being Mary
Steinhauser, a corrections officer. She was killed by another corrections officer when the emergency response team stormed the inmates.
