WAUWATOSA (WITI) — Jennifer Sebena’s husband is charged with her murder. Now, there is new controversy surrounding Benjamin Sebena.

FOX6 News has learned five Milwaukee County correctional officers are accused of giving Sebena preferential treatment behind bars.

Sources confirm that one correction officer has been fired. Now, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is looking to fire four more after a piece of candy was found in Sebena’s cell.

Sebena is on suicide watch so even a piece of candy is against protocol.

One source tells FOX6 News other inmates are allowed to have candy — and is not sure why there are strict restrictions on Sebena.

Four of the officers will go before the county’s personnel review board in July.

Sheriff Clarke’s office would not comment on these developments.
