McLOUD, Okla. (AP) -- Two guards at an Oklahoma women's prison have lost their jobs because of sexual misconduct allegations.
The male guards worked at the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud, outside of Oklahoma City. A prisons spokesman says one guard was fired on Sept. 12 and the other resigned the same day.
The Oklahoman (http://is.gd/hHEUBE ) reports the men were accused in separate incidents.
One officer was accused of having consensual sex with a female inmate and the other was accused of inappropriate conduct with a different prisoner.
Under Oklahoma law, it is a felony to have sex with an inmate.
The incidents are still under investigation and the Corrections Department didn't release the names of the guards.

A lot of the snow has been cleared from the main roads and highways, but there's still a lot of slush and that means re-freezing is a big concern.
