Man dies of wounds from stabbing in jail

A 41-year-old man jailed on theft and burglary charges died last night at Johns Hopkins Hospital, two days after being stabbed in the neck by a fellow inmate at the Baltimore City Detention Center, authorities said.

Anthony E. Conaway of the 4000 block of Ayrdale Ave. was attacked shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday in an incident that remains under investigation by the state prison system, said Barbara Cooper, spokeswoman for the Division of Pretrial Detention and Services. Details were not disclosed.

Conaway, who was being held without bail, also had been charged with a violation of probation, Cooper said, adding that he had been at the detention center since September and was being housed in its general population.

Cooper could not say yesterday where in the center Conaway was when he was stabbed, whether he and other inmates were in close proximity to any correctional officers or whether the weapon had been recovered.

"This incident is under investigation, and at this time I don't have that information in my possession," Cooper said, adding that the probe was being headed by the internal investigation unit of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

"We offer our deepest sympathy at this time to the family of Mr. Conaway," Cooper said.
