SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say two Salem jail inmates have been indicted on attempted murder, strangulation and other charges in an incident in which a deputy sheriff was assaulted.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 46-year-old Bradley Monical and 40-year-old Brian Eller were indicted Tuesday.

The charges stem from a November 2016 incident in which authorities say the two men attacked Marion County Deputy Sheriff Stacy Headrick.

KATU-TV reports (https://goo.gl/1DrvAG ) that Headrick, a 14-year veteran with Marion County Sheriff’s Office, was on an hourly check in the jail in the early morning hours when the incident occurred.

Headrick was treated at a Salem hospital. No information was given about the extent of his injuries.



Monical and Eller have been transferred to another jail.
