January 09, 2002

State prison officials were investigating yesterday the stabbing of a 35-year-old inmate at the Maryland House of Correction Annex.

Lorenzo Hazel was stabbed multiple times in his upper body about 7 p.m. Monday in a recreation room at the maximum-security prison in Jessup, prison officials said. Correctional officers found prison-made knives in the recreation room, but no one had been charged yesterday, said Lt. Priscilla Doggett, a spokeswoman for the Division of Correction.

Hazel, who is serving a life term for murder and armed robbery, was in critical condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, officials said.
