Utah man charged with death of Kingman inmate

11-14-2005 Arizona

KINGMAN - A Utah man has been charged with the death of a Kingman man at the Mohave County Jail.

Jereme Allen Cosby, 33, of West Valley City, Utah, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Peter Brian Deakin who was found dead the night of Oct. 14 in his D-pod cell.

Cosby is being held without bond.

Inmates in D-Pod cell were locked down for about 12 hours after Deakin's body was discovered, Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

An autopsy ruled that Deakin, 37, was killed by a blunt force trauma to the head and asphyxiation, Carter said.

Deakin had been in jail since Sept. 29 for felony probation violation, felony failure to register as a sex offender, misdemeanor charge of assault/domestic violence; and a misdemeanor warrant for interfering with judicial proceedings from Kingman Justice Court.

Cosby, who has a lightning-bolt “SS” tattooed on his neck, is admittedly a member of the Nazi Lowriders, a white supremacist group in California.

Cosby was extradited from Salt Lake City on Oct. 7 on a felony warrant out of Lake Havasu City for burglary, theft and trafficking in stolen property.

According to Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan, the investigation is ongoing and there is a possibility of other inmates being charged, Carter said. ..more.. by Daily News Staff
