JONESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Virginia federal prison is on lockdown after an inmate was killed in an incident involving another prisoner.
A prison spokesman says staff immediately separated the inmates Tuesday at U.S. Penitentiary-Lee in Jonesville, in southwestern Virginia. Inmate Quentin Corniel was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
No staff members were injured and the prison remained on lockdown Wednesday. Prison officials did not provide details of the incident.
Corniel was serving a 77-month sentence for being a felon in possession of ammunition and was due to be released in August.
His cause of death hasn't been determined, but an autopsy has been ordered.
