Thomas Jordan Driver, David Elliot Morgan, and Charles Thomas Newcomb allegedly plotted the murder in retaliation for a fight between the inmate and one of the correctional officers. The planned murder was to take place once the inmate was released from prison, according to Attorney General Pam Bondi.
“Driver and Morgan are employees at the Florida Department of Corrections, and Newcomb is a former DOC employee,” Bondi said in a statement published in the Orlando Sentinel. “The defendants plotted the murder as retaliation for a fight between the inmate, who is African American, and Driver.”
Driver, Morgan, and Thomas are each facing one state count of conspiracy to commit murder.
