A federal prison inmate has been charged with murder in the January 2009 death of another inmate at the Big Sandy federal prison, according to court documents.
John Travis Millner is accused of killing Vincent E. Smith Jr. at the prison at Inez on January 28, 2009.
Federal court documents do not provide details of the murder or elaborate on why charges were filed more than four years after the death.
U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey declined to comment on the case Tuesday.
