Murder Suspect Accused Of Attacking Inmate

Posted: Updated:

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A man awaiting trial on charges that he killed his father has been indicted on charges that he conspired to attack another inmate at the Morris County Jail.

Authorities say Brendon Matos and an accomplice, Carlos Ramos-Roque, punched Alex Moreta and kicked him in the face as part of a plan to get him out of their unit in jail.

Both men are charged with aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault in the March attack that fractured the alleged victim's eye socket.

Matos is charged with killing his father in July 2011 so he could steal money and buy drugs.
