Prisoner Altercation Results in Death

A prisoner altercation last Friday between two inmates at the United States Penitentiary in Lee County has resulted in one inmate dead, with the other inmate having been treated for his minor injuries. At this time the name hasn't been released pending notification of the family.
According to information provided by prison officials, once the two brawling inmates had been separated, staff immediately began their life saving efforts on the critically injured prisoner. The inmate was transferred to a local hospital and then later died of his injuries. No staff members were hurt during the incident and an investigation is underway and charges are pending towards the surviving combatant.
