Guards, inmates face charges in NYC jail death

NEW YORK (AP) – Jail guards and several inmates are facing criminal charges in the beating death of an 18-year-old prisoner at New York City’s Rikers Island.

Prosecutors in the Bronx are expected to announce an indictment Thursday afternoon in the slaying of Christopher Robinson.

Robinson’s family, which has filed a wrongful death lawsuit, claims the guards did nothing while inmates beat and stomped the victim to death last October.

It was the first homicide in city jails in four years.
