CLINTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have charged
an inmate with manslaughter in the death of a fellow inmate at a New Jersey
Bail for 24-year-old Floyd Nichols of Paterson is set at $500,000.
Authorities say Nichols assaulted 23-year-old Joshua Jones inside a dorm at
Mountainview Youth Correctional Facility in Clinton Township on Aug. 14. Jones
died two days later.
Jones was convicted of possession of a handgun and distributing drugs in a
school zone. He would have been eligible for parole in January.
