PUNTA GORDA — Nearly 10 months after 30-year-old Nathaniel Delgado was killed in his prison cell at Charlotte Correctional Institution, an arrest has been made.
Delgado's cellmate, Kelly B. McPherson III, 27, was booked into the Charlotte County Jail Tuesday on a manslaughter charge after being transported from the Florida State Prison in Raiford.
"The safe and secure operation of Florida’s correctional institutions is the Department of Corrections’ top priority," the Florida Department of Corrections said in an emailed statement Wednesday. "Every inmate death is thoroughly investigated by law enforcement and the Department’s Office of Inspector General to ensure independent oversight and absolute accountability at all levels."
