The Lucas County Grand Jury indicted inmate Lawrence Michael Hensley Monday for homicide.

The indictment follows the assault and strangulation death of a fellow inmate at the Toledo Correctional Institution in September.

The victim, Bradley L. Hamlin, 24, of Mantua, Ohio was found unresponsive on the floor in Hensley's cell. Emergency lifesaving efforts were performed by corrections officers and medical staff until an ambulance arrived and transported him to St. Vincent's Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. Hamlin succumbed to his injuries two-days later.

Hamlin had been incarcerated at ToCI since November 8, 2011, for burglary, breaking and entering and theft out of Portage and Cuyahoga Counties. He was serving a 60-month sentence with an expected release date of June 5, 2016.

Hensley, 43, of Sydney, Ohio, is currently serving a life sentence for aggravated murder, kidnapping and felonious assault out of Shelby County. He was transferred to the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville following the September 2012 assault.
