Md. Inmate Dead After TV Attack

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a state prison inmate is dead after another prisoner bludgeoned him with a television set at the Western Correctional Institution near Cumberland.

Maryland State Police say a correctional officer saw an inmate hitting Timothy Davis, 37, in the head with a TV in a cell Sunday afternoon. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police wouldn’t identify Davis’ alleged assailant because he hasn’t been charged.

Davis was sentenced in 2007 to 50 years for attempted first-degree murder and drug and handgun violations in Baltimore City.

It was the second slaying at the maximum-security prison this month. The Feb. 2 death of inmate Blas Mata Aguilar also has been ruled a homicide.

    Hot Diggity Dog!! Saving some tax money!! Put it in our schools, instead of these losers sitting in jail. Let them keep killing each other…

    Hope he didn’t break the TV. The State will want to use taxpayer money for a new one. If it is broken let the inmate buy the new one or let them do without.

    Why in the hell do these dirt bags have televisions in the first place. Prisons are like resorts for these losers! But after thinking about it, maybe they should put one television in every cell. After awhile the prison population will be cut atleast in half. No that’s a way to reduce spending!

    Shame the vic wasn’t Derrick Powell.

    IT’S A SHAME HOW PEOPLE GO AND VOICE THERE TAKE ON THINGS. FREEDOM OF SPEECH GOES ALONG WAY THESE DAYS. NO ONE EVER THOUGHT TO SAY IF THE MAN KILLED IS GUILTY OF THE CRIME OR EVEN IF HE HAS A FAMILY OR KIDS. HOW WOULD IT MAKE YOU FEEL IF IT WAS ONE OF YOUR LOVED ONES AND SOMEONE WROTE ALL THOSE CRAZY COMENTS. AS HUMAN BEINGS WE TEND TO JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE FIRST AND NOT JUDGE OURSELVES. IF OTHER PEOPLE COULD SEE US AS WE REALLY ARE WHAT WOULD THAT IMAGE LOOK LIKE
