A convicted killer serving time "for one of the most heinous murders in Nebraska history" is working in the state governor's mansion, "guiding tours of the Colonial-style home and its collections of dolls, silver and other state mementos."
Inmates have worked at the Nebraska governor's house for decades, although usually in menial behind-the-scenes jobs, like car-washing and serving food. Timothy Haverkamp, found guilty of second-degree murder of two people in 1985, might be the only convicted killer who's ever worked on the property.
Of course, this begs a question: Is providing tours of a doll collection considered cruel and unusual punishment?
