GATE CITY, Va. (AP) - A Virginia inmate will face capital murder charges in the death of another inmate at the Duffield Regional Jail.

 

21-year-old Shannon Bellamy of Gate City was indicted this week in the April death of 42-year-old Jeffery Kilgore of Wise.

 

Virginia State Police said there was an altercation in the housing pod that led to Kilgore's death.

 

Scott County Commonwealth's Attorney Marcus McClung says Bellamy was in jail serving time on drug and child sex offenses.

 

Bellamy could face the death penalty if convicted.
