A Warren County Jail inmate who broke another prisoner’s jaw has been ordered to serve an extra year in jail.
The inmate, Johnny Miles Tindell, was sentenced Wednesday to serve 364 days of a four-year sentence for aggravated assault. He was also ordered by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to pay the medical bills of the inmate once those are determined.
Investigators say Tindell assaulted fellow inmate Marty Andrew Muncey. “He entered Muncey’s cell and attacked him while he was lying in his bed,” said sheriff’s investigator Steven Carpenter, noting the attack hospitalized Muncey.
“The incident caused numerous injuries to Muncey’s face, including a cracked jaw, broken orbital socket and a tear in his eye.”
The investigator said Tindell can be seen on surveillance video leaving the victim’s cell after the attack.
“He admitted to the assault and said there was a disagreement between the two,” Carpenter said of what prompted the attack.
