Inmate fatally stabbed at Bibb Co Correctional; Facility on lockdown
Officials report that 33-year-old Cedric Jerome Robinson died after being attacked by inmates at approximately 8:30 a.m. Friday. He was taken to Bibb Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 8:42 a.m.
A second inmate was also stabbed in the attack. He was treated at the facility and his injuries are reported as non-life-threatening.
Surveillance video shows four inmates attacking Robinson and the second inmate. Officials identified inmates Dominique Covin, Roderck DeLaune, Anthony Bright, and Byron Epps as suspects in the attack. Makeshift weapons used in the stabbings were recovered. It is unclear at this time what led to the attack.
Robinson was convicted of credit card fraud and criminal possession of a forged instrument in Mobile County in 2016 and was serving a six-year sentence. All four suspects are serving sentences for robbery convictions and are now facing capital murder charges.
Officials have placed the correctional facility on lockdown until DOC completes its investigation.
