2-22-2010 Indiana:

ANDERSON, IN - Madison County Prosecutor Thomas Broderick, Jr., filed formal charges today against Richard L. Short, 26, a former inmate at the Pendleton Correctional Facility, for Murder and Prisoner in Possession of Dangerous Device, arising from the death of Charles L. Jackson, 52 (Sex Offender) also inmate at the Pendleton Correctional Facility.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Jackson was stabbed to death with a homemade knife on January 23, 2010. Both Short and Jackson were incarcerated at the Pendleton Correctional Facility at the time. According to the Probable Cause Affidavit Jackson died less than an hour after he was stabbed, but not before telling an officer at the facility that Short had stabbed him.

According to Prosecutor Broderick Short has since been transferred to Wabash Valley Correctional Facility where according to the probable cause affidavit a letter written by Short was confiscated by correction officials in which letter Short admits to stabbing Jackson. Short is also reported to have admitted to State Police investigators that he stabbed Jackson according to the affidavit.

Prosecutor Broderick said Short was serving a 40 year sentence at the Pendleton Correctional Facility out of Hamilton County for a 2004 Burglary conviction that had resulted in a death. The Pendleton Correctional Facility is operated by the Indiana Department of Correction and houses an average daily population of approximately 1870 offenders. The facility houses individuals that come from all over the State.

A warrant will be issued and served upon Short who will later be transported to Madison County for an initial hearing. Broderick stated that he will personally prosecute the case. ..Source.. Anderson Free Press
