Prison inmate charged with homicide in cellmate's death

Authorities say a New Jersey prison inmate has been charged with homicide in the death of his cellmate.

The Cumberland County prosecutor's office says 25-year-old Keyon Wade of North Brunswick was found unresponsive with head trauma at South Woods State Prison on Thursday afternoon.

His cellmate, 34-year-old Anthony Cole of South Plainfield, was charged with homicide.

Reports state Cole was sentenced to nearly 27 years in an attack on a South Plainfield public works employee on Labor Day 2009. Wade was imprisoned on aggravated assault and other charges.

It's unclear whether Cole has an attorney who could offer comment on the charges.
