|A Dresden native and convicted felon was killed during a prison brawl last week in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. |
Adam Martin, 34, formerly of Dresden, was serving a 20-year prison sentence for methamphetamine and weapons convictions, according to The Daily Item newspaper.
This was reportedly the second prisoner death at the Pennsylvania prison in less than a month.
Martin was incarcerated in May 1999. He was eligible for early release on parole in January 2016.
He was transported to a undisclosed hospital, where he was pronounced dead from injuries sustained in the alleged beating. The FBI is investigating the incident. Martin’s services were held Sunday at Bowlin Funeral Home in Dresden.
