Thursday, December 26, 2013 - 12:42 pm

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.
