Texarkana police said that they have brought charges against 28-year-old Tramell MacKenzie Hunter, after being accused of killing 47-year-old Lisa Mauldin.

The Miller County Sheriff’s Office said that the incident unfolded on Sunday, at approximately 1:00 p.m. Two female correction officers were attacked by Hunter within the Miller County Detention Center.

Both correction officers were transported to the Wadley Hospital, for injuries sustained during the attack. Mauldin succumbed to her injuries and Corrections Officer Demaris Allen, was transported to a Little Rock hospital.

Security surveillance video of the prison showed that the attack unfolded in the kitchen area of the prison. Investigators did not reveal what led to the confrontation, but Hunter said in court that Mauldin was messing with his life.

Hunter was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated robbery and domestic battery.
