Arthur Williams of Tillsonburg, was in custody after being charged for allegedly trying to lure a nine-year-old boy.

Marianna Police Chief Hayes Baggett says officers were called to the Jackson County Correctional Facility early Monday morning to investigate a reported homicide.

Investigators say staff found Williams dead during a security check.

21 year old Frederick Patterson, of Brunswick, Ga., Is facing a murder charge and is alleged to have killed Williams in what police called an “ambush style attack.”
