To ease overcrowding in Kansas prisons, more than 600 male prisoners can expect to be transferred to a facility in Eloy, Ariz., according to the Kansas Department of Corrections.

That’s more than 1,000 miles from Iola; an 18-hour drive.

The separation will cause undue hardship on both prisoners and their families.
