"20-year-old Daniel Cowart of Tennessee and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman of Arkansas are under the lockdown for their protection," according to The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. The two are only allowed to leave their cell for one hour to watch television or use the phone, but are reported to have caused no problems since arriving to the jail about two weeks ago. They have pleaded not guilty to charges but could face 50 years in prison if convicted.
