ALBUQUERQUE — An internal state Corrections Department investigation determined former Los Lunas prison warden Anthony Romero did not try to obstruct an FBI investigation into the alleged rape of an inmate by a high-ranking guard in 2011.

The department's Professional Standards Unit announced the investigation's completion at a news conference Thursday in Santa Fe, according to a news release from the department. Romero, who was reassigned last month pending the results of the probe, will return to his position as deputy director of adult prisons.
