Michigan prisoner murder of child porn ringleader in prison

An inmate has been sentenced to an additional 24 years in prison after admitting to ruthlessly killing a fellow inmate – a convicted child predator.

Adam Taylor Wright pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 2019 death of Christian Maire at Milan Correctional Facility in Milan, Michigan. On Wednesday, US District Court Judge Paul D. Borman sentenced Wright to 24 years and four months for the brutal murder. Wright’s sentence will be concurrent/consecutive with the prison sentences he is serving for other crimes.

On January 2, 2019, Wright and fellow inmates Alex Albert Castro, 42, and Jason Dale Kechego, 41, killed fellow inmate Maire, according to court records.

“In particular, Wright and Kechego repeatedly kicked and stomped Maire in the head, and Wright prevented correctional officers from intervening while Castro repeatedly stabbed Maire,” he said Ministry of Justice. “Wright then cooperated with his two co-defendants to throw Maire’s body down a flight of stairs. Maire died from multiple stab wounds (28 in total) and blunt force trauma to the head.”

The murder case was investigated by FBI agents.

Trials for the other two co-defendants are pending.

US Attorney Dawn Ison said in a statement: “Deterring violence in prisons will always be a priority of this office. Senseless acts of violence that endanger the safety of Bureau of Prisons staff and inmates will be aggressively pursued.”

Wright – nicknamed “Creeper” – was convicted rob Banks in July 2018.

Maire – a married father of two from New York – was sentenced to prison for crimes committed while he was allegedly the leader of an international child porn ring. Maire and his cohorts allegedly targeted vulnerable teenage girls online to engage in sexual acts online. According to prosecutors, the nine child molesters pretended to be teenagers for five years in order to befriend young, lonely girls.

The child porn ring members manipulated teenage girls into stripping, engaging in sexual acts online and even convinced some of the victims to cut themselves while the sex offenders watched in online video chat rooms. The child sexual abuse group reportedly shared the videos among members. The child porn ring reportedly exploited more than 100 teenage girls in the US and Canada, ages 10 to 17, before being arrested by the FBI in 2017.

That Detroit FreePress reported in February: “During their sentencing hearings, the defendants faced some of their still-traumatized victims, who persuaded a judge to jail the men for decades for robbing them of their innocence and trust and destroying their childhoods.”

One victim told the judge, “Thinking back to those days, I cry myself to sleep and wonder when the monsters will stop chasing me.”
