UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A prison inmate has pleaded not guilty to criminal homicide and other charges in the death of another inmate in Pennsylvania last year.

The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard (https://bit.ly/2fb9HNE ) reports that 31-year-old Daysean Brock appeared via video for his formal arrangement Friday before a Fayette County judge.

Authorities allege that Brock assaulted 51-year-old John Steckley in June 2016 at the State Correctional Institution-Fayette. A witness reportedly said Brock blindsided the victim, who hit his head as he fell. Steckley was found unresponsive in his cell the next day and later died.

Brock is currently serving his 24- to 48-year third-degree murder sentence at the State Correctional Institution at Huntington.
