Inmate dies after attack at California prison
IMPERIAL, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a California prison inmate has died after he was attacked by two other prisoners.
It’s the second death of a state prison inmate in two days.
State corrections officials say the 32-year-old man was beaten by two inmates Friday in a recreation yard at Centinela State Prison in Imperial.
Guards broke up the fight and began life-saving measures but the victim died at a hospital.
Authorities found two homemade weapons in the yard.
One inmate suspected in the attack is serving a 20-year sentence for robbery. The other is serving life for second-degree murder.
On Thursday, a 63-year-old inmate was attacked and stabbed at a maximum-security prison east of Sacramento.
Two inmates are suspected in that death.
