federal inmate texarkana charged death

TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) — A federal inmate in East Texas a year away from his release now is facing an additional 15 years in prison after authorities say he caused the death of another prisoner.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that 27-year-old Jama Jerrell Hinkle was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Texarkana on a count of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 42-year-old Brandon Ray Parker.

Incident allegedly occurred last September

The indictment alleges the two were arguing in September when Hinkle punched Parker, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground.
Hinkle is serving a five-year sentence for robbing a Fort Worth bank. He was scheduled for release next January but now is facing the new charge.
