DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - An investigation into the killing of
a corrections officer in Daytona Beach found the officer wasn't
wearing a body alarm or carrying a radio when she died.

It is unclear why Officer Donna Fitzgerald was without the
security measures when she killed at the Tomoka Correctional
Institution in June. She had been supervising inmates in a work
program.

Enoch Hall, 39, has been charged in Fitzgerald's death. Hall,
who was already serving two life terms for sexual battery and
kidnapping, has pleaded not guilty.

Prior to Fitzgerald's slaying, the last time a Florida corrections officer was killed was June 2003.
