Two men, 25 and 36, have recently appeared in court, facing charges related to the alleged brutal bashing death of a 31 year old man in jail. The incident unfolded at the Capricornia Correctional Centre in Central Queensland.

The event occurred 13 months ago when the male was found unresponsive in the prison gym, succumbing to his injuries later at Rockhampton Base Hospital. Queensland Correctional Services Investigation Unit detectives have charged both men with murder.

At the time of the alleged assault, the male had been serving time for a dangerous driving offense committed in 2021. The incident involved his vehicle crossing into oncoming traffic, resulting in a collision with another vehicle. While he sustained injuries in the crash, no other individuals were harmed. He was just three months away from being eligible for parole when the tragic incident occurred.
