Mississippi Prison Riot

Inmate set to pleaded guilty in Miss. prison riot

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - An inmate is scheduled to plead guilty Tuesday to participating in a deadly prison riot in Mississippi.

One guard was killed and 20 people were injured in the May 20 riot at the privately-run Adams County Correctional Facility in Natchez, which holds illegal immigrants convicted of crimes in the U.S.

Yoany Oriel Serrano-Bejarano was indicted in October. A change of plea hearing is scheduled to take place Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Natchez.

A complaint filed by an FBI agent says he assaulted a guard and helped other inmates climb onto the roof of a building where correction officer Catlin Carithers was beaten to death.
