BREAKING NEWS

Kansas inmates accused of severely beating fellow prisoner

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2015

Two Kansas inmates who are accused of nearly beating a fellow prisoner to death last year have appeared in court on the charges.

The Hutchinson News reports 31-year-old Juan Garza and 22-year-old Jerrod Green appeared Thursday on charges of aggravated battery or in the alternate attempted capital murder. He’s also charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated battery or in the alternate conspiracy to commit attempted capital murder.

A count in the alternate means a jury can convict the men of one or the other count, but not both.

The two are accused in the June 12, 2014, beating of Miguel Garcia inside Hutchinson Correctional Facility. Assistant Reno County prosecutor Andrew Davidson says Garza and Green “beat up the guy real bad” in prison.
