A 47-year-old inmate at the Wisconsin Secure Program Facility in Boscobel is facing a charge of attempted homicide after a Monday attack.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office was called to the maximum-security prison shortly before 9:00 A-M. Authorities say inmate Dexter Ewing used a shank to attack a correctional officer, trying to stab him in the neck. Ewing was disarmed before he could seriously injure the victim. The 42-year-old guard was treated and released at Gunderson Hospital for wounds to his neck and face.
