PONTIAC, Ill. (AP) - Murder charges have been filed in the December death of an inmate at Pontiac Correctional Center in central Illinois.

Livingston County State’s Attorney Seth Uphoff announced Friday that 34-year-old Michael Bragg is charged in the death of 36-year-old Fabian Carrillo. The inmate was found with a cord wrapped around his neck and on the floor of the cell the two shared.

Autopsy results showed Carrillo, who was serving time for murder, died of strangulation and had signs of blunt force trauma to his head.

Uphoff, who said Bragg gave a statement to investigators, did not disclose what led to the dispute between the two men.

The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports (https://bit.ly/1HaDUlf) court records show Bragg is serving a 22-year sentence for aggravated criminal sexual assault.
