Inmate charged in death

A 30-year-old man has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in Kamloops.

The charges stem from the sudden death of a 20-year-old inmate at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre in 2014.

RCMP say Nathaniel Jessup will remain in custody as he waits to go before a judge. 

New information came to light in 2015 that prompted RCMP to investigate the death.

Jessup was an inmate at the time of the victim’s death. He is not from Kamloops but is known to police.

The victims family have been notified.
