Three teenagers already in a Kinston jail could face more charges for what lawmen are calling a gang-related jailhouse brawl.
The Kinston Free Press says the three teens may face more charges now for beating another inmate until he was unconscious Sunday. The teenagers accused of fighting are Devine Slade, Jerrell Pridgen and Corrionte Turnage.
Pridgen, 18, was arrested in March for the murders of 17-year-old Rasheed Jones and 21-year-old Tyrone Collins.
Devine Slade, 17, has been behind bars since June for the murder of Deputy Warren "Sneak" Lewis.
Corrionte Turnage, 19, faces drugs and weapons charges. In 2010, he was convicted of robbery.
The paper says that inmate Allen Lewis, 29, was treated and released from the hospital Sunday. He has asked lawmen not to charge the three for the assault.
Lewis is facing his fourth felony firearms possession charge. He has also been convicted of theft three times.
