Four inmates from the state prison in Tucson are facing multiple new felony charges in connection with the murder of another inmate last September.

Christopher Gregory Simpson, 32; Ryan Wayne Bohannon, 30; Scott Mitchell Elrod, 27; and Tim Westly Weaver, 50, are all facing charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and promoting prison contraband in connection with the Sept. 5, 2017, fatal attack on Joseph Zawacki.
