In DeMocker's cell: Solitary confinement at the county jail

Since October of 2010, accused murderer Steven DeMocker has been living in a solitary confinement cell at the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde, a situation his attorneys have said is "not a humane arrangement."The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office denied The Daily Courier permission to view a solitary confinement cell, officially known as "administrative segregation." In an email denying the request, spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn cited "security concerns" as the reason.
