OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Officials say an inmate was badly injured during a fight
with another inmate at the Douglas County Jail.

Douglas County Sheriff Tim Dunning says 24-year-old Anthony Floyd had his
testicles partially detached during the fight Thursday. He was taken to the
Nebraska Medical Center for treatment.

The fight occurred in the jail's library between Floyd and 34-year-old Marcus
M. Escamilla.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1oUHesO ) Escamilla was booked on
suspicion of assault by a confined person. Additional information was not
released.

Floyd is charged with first-degree murder in the October death of 31-year-old
Rodney Hunt. Escamilla is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2013
shooting death of Kenneth D. Gunia.

Officials say neither inmate had any disciplinary problems barring them from
using the library together.
