|Arkansas prison inmate dies after assault; police call case homicide|
|By arkansasonline.com- John Moritz|
A prisoner serving a 10-year term for manslaughter died Thursday, nearly two weeks after he was involved in an assault at the Tucker Unit, according to prisons spokesman Solomon Graves.
Graves said it "would be a stretch" to connect the July 28 assault that injured John Demoret, 25, to either of a pair of incidents that occurred in recent weeks at the Maximum Security Unit, a separate facility also in Tucker.
The most recent disturbance at the Maximum Security Unit occurred Monday, when six inmates overpowered corrections officers and took control of a small area of the prison for about three hours.
