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.
