Inmate killed at Pendleton facility

1-24-2010 Indiana:

PENDLETON – The Pendleton Correctional Facility was put on lockdown Saturday afternoon after an inmate fatally stabbed another inmate, according to authorities.

The prison said in a press release that Charles L. Jackson, 52, was stabbed at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday, when inmates were released for recreation time. He was transported to the Health Care Center Emergency Room at the facility, where he was pronounced dead.

One suspect has been separated from the other inmates, authorities said, while the prison and state police continue an investigation.

Jackson, who the prison said lived in Marion, had served almost 13 years of an 80-year sentence for rape in Grant County.

The press release said Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie would perform an autopsy. ..Source.. Christina M. Wright, Herald Bulletin Staff Writer
