WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC) -

A prison in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, is one step closer to being moved into a vacant hospital in West Memphis.

The Chief Deputy Director of Arkansas Community Corrections said an estimated 350 female, non-violent offenders will move to the West Memphis hospital.

The move could happen as early as within the next 60 days, but it requires Governor Asa Hutchinson's approval.
