A 24-year-old inmate has allegedly been murdered while being held on remand at a maximum security jail in Sydney's west.
NSW Police on Thursday evening said they'd charged a 28-year-old man with murder after the younger man's body was found by Corrective Services staff at Silverwater's Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre about 6.30am.
The suspect Peter Juyong Ahn was previously charged with inflicting grievous body harm on a cellmate in Parklea in April.
Despite this Corrective Services still housed him in a cell with another prisoner.
