Gilchrist County Jail Inmate Dies Two Days After Fight with Cellmate
A Gilchrist County Jail inmate died Tuesday evening after getting into an altercation with a cellmate, according to the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.
On Sunday, 34-year-old Callen Quinton Kincaid had gotten into an altercation with Andrew Ward, 21.
During the incident, Kincaid was injured and transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment.
Kincaid was admitted and remained at Shands Hospital until his release on Tuesday evening, when he was transported back to the Gilchrist County Jail.
Kincaid arrived at the jail around 8 p.m., and he was found unresponsive about an hour later during an observation check by the corrections staff, according to the sheriff's office.
Attempts to revive Kincaid by the corrections staff and emergency medical services were unsuccessful.
The body has been transported to the Gainesville Medical Examiner's Office where an autopsy will be performed to establish a cause of death.
On Sunday, Ward was charged with aggravated battery upon Kincaid. On Wednesday, that charge was increased to manslaughter, and the incident is still under investigation.
At the time of the incident, Ward was serving a 60-day sentence, which began on July 20, for possession of alcohol by a person under 21 years old.
