Prisoner charged with attempted murder
A second prisoner has been charged with attempted murder over a violent stabbing at Acacia Prison.
It’s alleged a 65-year-old inmate was repeatedly stabbed on December 27.
The male victim was seriously injured and remains in hospital in a critical condition.
A 40-year-old male inmate has already pleaded guilty to the attack.
As part of the ongoing investigation, police have now charged a second person with attempting to unlawfully kill.
The 65-year-old man was refused bail and is due to face Midland Magistrates Court today.
