Prisoners beat inmate to death

Associated Press

TOLEDO: Prison officials in Ohio say an inmate has died after being beaten by other prisoners over the weekend.

It’s the third fatal attack at the Toledo Correctional Institution within the past year.

Authorities say 32-year-old James Oglesby died Wednesday from injuries suffered in the attack inside the Toledo prison’s recreation yard on Sunday.

A prison department spokeswoman says two other inmates beat Oglesby with softball bats.

He was serving a life sentence after being convicted of aggravated murder and kidnapping in Lorain County in 2006.

Two other inmates in the Toledo prison have died since last September after being attacked by other prisoners.

Records show violence has been on the rise since the prison started doubling up inmates in the same cell to deal with overcrowding.
