An inmate was beaten and found dead Wednesday night just 15 minutes after being placed in a cell with a man he had testified against, a state prisons spokesman said.With a name like that, he was born to be in prison.
Paul David Duran Jr., 23, had been in an altercation with another cellmate and then was placed in a cell with Jessie James Dalton, 32, at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, state Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie said. Only Dalton walked out alive.
