California Inmate Has Now Beaten to Death 2 Child Molesters With a Cane While in Prison, Authorities Say
A California inmate caused the deaths of two child molesters after beating their heads with a walking cane last week, authorities said.
Jonathan Watson, 41, allegedly attacked David Bobb, 48, and Graham De Luis-Conti, 62, on Thursday at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in Corcoran. They were taken to the hospital with head wounds.
Both men were serving life prison sentences for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 years old.
Watson has served 10 years of a life sentence from Humboldt County for first-degree murder and discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury or death.
An investigation into the prison beatings is ongoing.
