PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon Department of Corrections officials say death row inmate Christian Longo is trying to get married behind bars.

KATU reports (http://bit.ly/n8rzEv) the prison superintendent has blocked it because the woman, 32-year-old Keli Anne Cannon, is a former inmate of Coffee Creek's women's prison. As a former inmate she's not allowed in the prison.

Longo was sentenced to death in 2003 for killing his wife and three children on the Oregon coast.
