WAYNESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

An inmate has been indicted on murder and attempted murder charges of two inmates in a Clifton prison.

Derrick Lamonte McDowell, 32, was indicted on one count of first degree murder and one count of attempted first degree murder by a Wayne County grand jury in June in connection with the Sept. 1 attack authorities said was between two gangs in a housing unit at the South Central Correctional Facility.

Gerald Ewing, 29, died from stab wounds in the fight while William Jenkins, 25, suffered serious injuries.

McDowell was served the charges on Thursday and remains in Tennessee Department of Corrections custody.
