CHARLESTON, Mo. (AP) - A southeastern Missouri inmate is facing an additional charge after a jailer discovered him trying to send mail to a person set to testify against him.

The Sikeston Standard-Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1yXttOa ) 24-year-old Laterence Caldwell of Charleston is charged with tampering with a victim in a felony prosecution. Jail administrator Cory Hutcheson says Caldewell tried to send a letter to a victim in his domestic assault case to dissuade the victim from testifying in an upcoming hearing.

Caldwell was arrested in late September on charges of domestic assault, resisting arrest and endangering a child.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Caldwell has an attorney.
