Warren Correctional is located on Ohio 63, next to Lebanon Correctional, rated among the state’s most violent.
Last year, a twice-convicted murderer now accused of murdering another inmate, beat his cellmate to death with a brick pulled from a 2-by-2 foot hole in the wall of their cell in the segregation unit at Lebanon Correctional.

Indicted Monday in the Warren Correctional incident were inmate Richard C. Garnette, 37, on three counts of assault and Alfonso Price, 35, on five counts of assault. The charge is a third-degree-felony.
A third inmate, Kevin Bronson 34, was indicted on charges of possession of a deadly weapon while under detention, a second-degree felony, and obstructing official business, a fifth-degree felony.

Garnette was apparently intoxicated from “hooch,” an alcoholic beverage made in prisons. He is accused of assaulting three guards as they “locked him down” in his cell, according to Fornshell.

Price joined the fight and allegedly assaulted five guards. Bronson unscrewed a mop stick from the head and circled the fight, but never joined in, Fornshell added via text message.
The incident ended when enough guards arrived to control the inmate, but not before six guards were injured, Fornshell added.
Garnette, serving a 15-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter and having weapons under disability, was to complete his sentence in 2025.
