KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The convicted killer of a Corryton store owner is being sent to a maximum-security prison after a vigorous protest by the victim's brother over the killer's placement in a medium-security prison.

Tennessee Department of Correction officials say the placement of Robert Wayne Hurst, 41, in a medium-security facility was a temporary one, made only because a bed was immediately available there.
