The indictment said Teter beat Melton, and stomped on his head and throat.

Melton was serving a sentence for first degree attempted sodomy, and Teter was serving a sentence for 1999 second degree murder and armed criminal action charges out of Jackson County.

Teter is being held on those charges with no bond.
