A Shelbyville man died Saturday after being beaten by another inmate in a Las Vegas jail, according to officials at the Clark County Coroner’s office.
Jeremiah Bowling, 25, died of blunt force trauma at 6:12 p.m. officials said.
Franklin Sharp, 33, has been arrested and charged with murder in the death. Sharp is said to have been Bowling’s cellmate.
A corrections officer found Bowling bleeding from his head in his cell Saturday afternoon he was later pronounced dead.
The motive is believed to have stemmed from an argument.
