NEW BOSTON, Texas — A Texas prison inmate serving time for murder is on trial this week in Bowie County for allegedly assaulting a correctional officer and possessing a homemade shank.
A jury of four men and eight women began hearing testimony Wednesday afternoon in the case of David Robert Steiner Jr., 40. He is accused of attacking Correctional Officer Louis Jaralillo in the dayroom Nov. 10, 2016, of H pod in Building 7 at the Telford Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in New Boston.
A video of the event played for the jury showed Steiner milling about the dayroom, speaking briefly to Jaralillo and then landing several blows with his fists before the officer deploys pepper spray in the inmate's face.
