EVERETT — Washington taxpayers will be paying about $350,000 to compensate three recently reinstated Monroe corrections officers and a demoted sergeant who were disciplined after their co-worker, Jayme Biendl, was killed by an inmate in 2011.

The Daily Herald reports the estimated compensation includes benefits, sick leave, vacation, union dues, retirement contributions and more than $100,000 in unpaid wages. The total covers all four corrections officers, but the state is still negotiating with one of them.
