CHEYENNE, Wyo. - The Wyoming Department of Corrections has named Ruby Ziegler as deputy warden at the state's new medium-security prison in Torrington.
Ziegler will start at the Torrington job in December. She succeeds Michael Pacheco, who was promoted to warden of the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton in September.

Ziegler is a former president of the Wyoming Criminal Justice Association. She is working on a Ph.D. in public services with an emphasis on leadership.
