Man charged with murder of NSW inmate

A man has been charged with murder following investigations into the death of an inmate at a correctional facility in NSW.

Just after 2.30pm on Monday 19 June, police were called to a correctional centre on The Northern Road, at Berkshire Park, after a 24-year-old man was found critically injured.

Police said the man sustained serious head injuries and did not regain consciousness before dying in a Sydney hospital on Friday 30 June.


Following investigations, police have since charged a 29-year-old man with murder.

He was refused bail to appear in Penrith Local Court today.
