The Warren County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office will now decide on whether to file criminal charges after claims that an Audrain County deputy assaulted an inmate.
Richard Henry accused in the death of a man found bleeding from gunshot wounds last year near the Boone County line made claims of assault while he was in the Audrain County Jail.
Audrain County Sheriff Matt Oller asked the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office to investigate Henry’s assault allegations.
Callaway County Sheriff Clay Chism said yesterday (Wednesday) the investigation has now been referred to the Warren County Prosecutor.
According to the prosecutor a timeline for completing the review has not been set.
