Alabama inmate stabbing death under investigation


The Alabama Department of Corrections is investigating the stabbing death of an inmate Saturday.    

Authorities say a fight between two inmates was reported inside a prison housing area.  

Correctional officers found 24 year old Terrance Andrews unresponsive with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to the prison’s infirmary where he was pronounced dead at 4:20PM.

Prison officials have identified inmate 35 year old Cedric Davis as a suspect in Andrews’ death.  

Davis is serving a life sentence for a 2006 murder conviction in Baldwin County.  Andrews was serving a 25-year sentence on a 2013 first-degree robbery in Mobile County.  

A murder charge against Davis is pending. The ADOC is investigating the homicide to determine what led up to the incident.
