An inmate at the East Mississippi Correctional Facility at Lost Gap remains hospitalized from a severe beating earlier this week.
Family members say James Dunnkosky, who was incarcerated for failing to register as a sex offender, is at University Medical Center in Jackson in very critical condition.
The case is being investigated by the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department.
Dunnkosky was allegedly beaten by his cell mate, but no charges have been filed.
