Stateville's maximum security wing to close

null Up to 1,600 inmates will be relocated. That has angered many of their family members.

Some prison workers will lose their jobs.

It was built in 1925 and is in bad shape.

A new maximum security unit is scheduled to open soon at the Thomson Correctional center in western Illinois. Some Stateville prisoners will be moved there.
