Inmate charged in slaying of deputy in Detroit jail

DETROIT (AP) — An inmate has been charged in the slaying of a Wayne County sheriff’s deputy at a jail in downtown Detroit.

Deandre Williams, 28, of Detroit, was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on charges of first-degree premeditated murder, murder of a police officer, felony murder, unarmed robbery and escaping jail through violence, according to the county prosecutor's office.

The sheriff’s office has said Cpl. Bryant Searcy, 50, was checking cell doors on Sept. 2 when he was attacked as he walked past one he thought was locked.

Searcy, who joined the sheriff’s office in 2002, was found unresponsive by other deputies and died later at a hospital.
