An inmate at an Ionia correctional facility died last weekend from injuries he suffered after being assaulted by another inmate.
According to the Michigan State Police, detectives from the Lakeview post, Ionia detachment, were requested to investigate a serious assault between two inmates at the Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility, in Easton Township, Ionia County, on Thursday, March 7, 2013.
However, the assault soon turned into a homicide investigation after one of the inmates died on Saturday, March 9, from the injuries he received.
The name of the victim will not be released until his family has all been contacted. The incident is still under investigation.
