A Death in Mississippi, a Lawsuit in Texas

Rolling 2 stories into one here.  First up is a story from Mississippi, where Derek Criddle, a 26-year-old young man in a CCA facility, was stabbed to death during a fight.  Six other prisoners were injured in the scuffle, and two remained hospitalized as of Thursday.

Meanwhile in Texas, the family of a prisoner who died after "the [Brooks County] prison disregarded his very, very serious medical condition" is suing LCS Correctional Services for the wrongful death of Mario Garcia.
