NEW CASTLE, Ind. (AP) - Four men are facing charges following the March death of a fellow inmate who was beaten in a jail in east-central Indiana.

Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs says three inmates attacked 32-year-old Brian L. Gosser of New Castle, who died an Indianapolis hospital.

The (Muncie) Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/2dLTB8N ) they’re charged with aggravated battery and involuntary manslaughter. A fourth inmate is accused of being a lookout.

A sheriff’s investigator said Gosser was the target of repeated attacks, including three on Feb. 26. He was at the Henry County jail following a Feb. 17 arrest for driving while intoxicated. The Marion County coroner’s office said Gosser died of “multiple blunt force trauma injuries.”

Gosser’s family has filed a tort claim with Henry County, normally a step toward suing a government entity.
