Investigation continues into death of an inmate following jail fight

The investigation continues into the death of an inmate at the Southwest VIrginia regional jail.

The Bristol Herald Courier reports 42 year old Jerry Allen Kilgore of Wise died last week following a brief fight with 21 year old Shannon Bellamy of Gate City.

Officials locked the facility down following the fight, but lifted the lockdown a few hours later.

The Commonwealth's Attorney told the paper he is waiting for the results of an autopsy, which should be released on Monday, before pursing any charges.
