Prisoner accused of murdering another inmate at CMC
April 24, 2012
The suspected assailant is currently housed in the administrative segregation unit and the prison has been placed on a modified program pending further investigation.
Michael Walsh, 51, was found face down in the prison’s dining room where he was assigned to work and transported to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.
In 1997, Walsh was transported from Kern County with a life sentence for multiple charges including assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, false imprisonment, sexual assault with force, and assault with a deadly weapon.
