TBI: Man dies after six inmates conspire cell block fight

(MGN Online)

Six men have been indicted in connection to the death of an inmate in Washington County.

TBI special agents teamed up with the Washington County Sheriff's Office to investigate an assault at the Washington County Detention Center that led to the end of a man's life.

Corrections officers were alerted to a fight in one of the cell blocks on Dec. 17. They reported finding inmate Joseph M. Lockner unresponsive.

Authorities believe six inmates, five of which were Lockner's cellmates, conspired to carry out the assault. Lockner died from his injuries on Dec. 20.

The Washington County Grand Jury returned indictments charging all six men in connection to the assault on Thursday.
