3 Guards Murdered Mentally Ill Inmate

Three guards in Santa Clara, California have been found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2015 death of mentally ill inmate Michael Tyree. The three had also been charged with assaulting another, mentally ill inmate.

According to CBS News, Tyree incurred numerous injuries from a beating executed by Jereh Lubrin, Rafael Rodriguez, and Matthew Farris. Amongst the injuries that lead to his death were lacerations to the liver and spleen, which was nearly severed in two. Tyree was ultimately found in his cell naked and covered in vomit and feces.

The defense had attempted to argue that a medical examiner had drawn the incorrect conclusion that Tyree had been beaten to death, and stated that an investigation into the inmate’s cell was inadequate. They argued that messages scrawled into the walls of Tyree’s cell could have been a suicide note and that the injuries could have been caused by a fall from the toilet.
