Pendleton - An employee at the Pendleton Correctional Facility was assaulted Monday morning.

Joseph Neill, a maintenance supervisor at the prison, was assaulted by an offender with a weapon around 10 a.m., according to superintendent Brett Mize. Neill sustained approximately ten puncture wounds to his leg and lower body, though none of the injuries were life-threatening or serious. He was treated and released from St. John's Hospital in Anderson before returning to the facility following treatment.

The alleged attacker was identified as Jeffrey Treadway, 49, who is serving a life sentence without parole on a murder charge out of Marion County. He is also serving sentences for other charges for robbery and battery. He was found guilty of the assault on Neill by the Facility Disciplinary Hearing Body and is being transferred to another facility.

Treadway was convicted of attacking and killing 82-year-old Donald Carroll in 2005. Prosecutors say Treadway beat Carroll with a brick in his east side home. They say he also stole money from the World War II veteran and attacked his wife, who survived.

Officials say the prison will be working with the Indiana State Police and the Madison County Prosecutor's Office to pursue criminal charges against Treadway for a prisoner in possession of a dangerous device or material and battery with bodily injury - both felonies.

The motive for the attack appears to have been retaliation against Neill, who had recently filed a disciplinary report on Treadway.

Prison guard Brandi Gilland was also attacked and beaten by an inmate at the prison on December 17.
