Officials investigate Corcoran prison killing 

Prison officials are investigating the killing of an inmate at the state prison in Corcoran.

Forty-three-year-old Jeffrey Lynn Goodwin was found with a head injury Thursday in the recreation yard of the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility. Officials say Goodwin died Sunday of his injuries.

Investigators believe two inmates, Cedric Mills and Charles Morris, were involved in the killing. Both remain in solitary confinement pending the investigation.

Officials say the victim had been serving a nearly 15-year sentence for an Orange County robbery since 2003.

Mills is serving a 70-year sentence for robbery and sex assault, and Morris is serving a life term for second-degree murder, attempted murder and other charges.

The Corcoran prison houses male inmates ranging from minimum- to maximum-security and provides substance abuse treatment programs.
