Prison Officials Transfer Rios to Minnesota

February 11, 2006 - Posted at 12:29 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Convicted murderer and former Columbia

police Officer Steven Rios has been moved from a Missouri prison to

a facility in Minnesota.

The Missouri Department of Corrections says Rios was transferred

from the Fulton Reception and Diagnostic Center to an out-of-state

prison, but declined to say when or why he was moved.

The department says if prisoners are moved out of state it's

usually for safety reasons.

A receptionist at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-St. Cloud

confirmed that Rios is now an inmate there.

Rios was sentenced to life in prison in July for first-degree

murder in the death of 23-year-old Jesse Valencia, who was found

dead in 2004. Witnesses testified during Rios' trial that Valencia

threatened to expose a sexual relationship between them.
