RALEIGH, N. C. – Defense attorneys say medical care for former Salvadoran colonel accused of helping to plot the five deaths has decreased since his transfer to a new facility to await a final decision on his extradition.
A lawyer for Innocente Orlando Montano Morales says in a file that the routine blood sugar checks were missed and he had a fever and other symptoms that indicate he could have a new infection.
Judge Terrence Boyle had tried to send Montano to a federal prison hospital because of concerns about his health, but the transfer was not possible. Instead, he was sent from a North Carolina crash of a Virginia prison.
The U. S. Marshals Service said that the following procedures for the review of Montano’s complaints, but could not provide details.
