An Allen County Sheriff's Department confinement officer remains hospitalized after an alleged assault on Christmas Day by an inmate in the Allen County Jail – an inmate already convicted of and sentenced for murder.Officer Quinton Greer, who has served with the department for three years, is in serious but stable condition, according to Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel, a spokesman for the sheriff's department.

Officers from the sheriff's department and the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the jail, 417 S. Calhoun St., at around 11:25 a.m. Wednesday after Greer called for assistance, according to information previously released by the sheriff's department. Tinkel told WANE-TV, NewsChannel 15, that Greer had sustained a head injury.

Deadrian Boykins has been charged with battery to a law enforcement officer, a Class C felony, according to a news release.

Boykins was sentenced to 65 years in prison Dec. 20 after his conviction in the April murder of a 17-year-old – a sentence that won't even start until a 12-year-sentence for robbery is completed.
