Authorities report that 4 inmates at one of South Carolina’s maximum security prisons were found dead inside a dormitory on Friday morning. 

Kirkland Correctional Institution is in the capital city of Columbia.

Department of Corrections Director Bryan Stirling said he asked the State Law Enforcement Division to assist Corrections police with their investigation. Coroner Gary Watts confirmed he was investigating four deaths at the facility, Fox News reports.

Authorities say that two convicts, each serving a life sentence for killing a mother and her child have been charged with murder in the strangulation deaths of the four inmates.

Arrest warrants released early Saturday say 35-year-old Denver Simmons and 25-year-old Jacob Philip lured each inmate into a cell on Friday morning.

The warrants say the men worked together to choke all four inmates. Two of the victims were also beaten and stabbed with a broken broomstick.

The warrants gave no reason for the attack or how long the killings took. Prison officials are investigating the attack and have not commented. The warrants say there is video.

Kirkland operates a specialized housing unit for the state’s most dangerous inmates, an assessment and evaluation center for new inmates sentenced to more than three months, and a 24-bed infirmary, according to the Corrections website.

Kirkland Reception and Evaluation Center is located in Columbia, South Carolina.  It is a maximum security level 3 facility that houses male offenders.  The current capacity of Kirkland Correctional Center is 1,706 inmates.

This facility is responsible for the reception, assessment and classification of all male inmates who are sentenced to over 91 days, and processes over 15,000 inmates each year.

Kirkland is also responsible for the maximum security unit which houses some of the most violent and dangerous inmates in the state. Furthermore, Kirkland Correctional Center houses inmates who are in the statewide protective custody program.

Educational courses at Kirkland Reception and Evaluation Center include adult basic education, and GED testing.  Mental health services, dental and medical care are all provided on site at this institution.  This facility also provides video conferencing capabilities for inmates with parole hearings.

The prison has been the scene of previous violence. In 2015, two inmates held two nurses hostage with homemade knives for seven hours after forcing their way into a nursing station where prescription drugs were kept. One nurse’s throat was cut, but she survived.

Last year, three corrections officers at Kirkland were fired after officials said they tried to kill an inmate in their care. Authorities said the officers, who were charged with attempted murder and misconduct in office, stabbed an inmate while he was handcuffed.

Their cases are still pending.

God Bless.
