An inmate at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail has died following an altercation with another prisoner.
Forty-year-old Jeffery Allen Kilgore died at a local hospital Thursday.
Maj. George Hembree tells The Kingsport Times-News (http://bit.ly/JK5ZDE) that inmates were finishing their lunch hour when the altercation occurred between Kilgore and 21-year-old Shannon Isiah Bellamy of Gate City.
Hembree says it doesn't appear any weapons were used.
Scott County Commonwealth's Attorney Marcus McClung tells the newspaper that charges are pending against Bellamy.
Kilgore was at the jail in Duffield awaiting a civil commitment for sex offenses.
Bellamy is serving a three-year sentence for carnal knowledge of a minor.
