AG: No Criminal Charges In Inmate Death
Dennis Lashley | Kendall Osteen

SPRINGFIELD, SD - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says there will be no criminal prosecution for an inmate involved in a fight at the Mike Durfee State Prison.

49-year-old Kendall Osteen was involved in an incident with his roommate, 62-year-old Dennis Lashley, last week.  Hours later, Lashley was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

After further investigation, the Attorney General's Office says the evidence does not justify criminal prosecution in part based upon self-defense.

Osteen's simple assault charges are also being dismissed.
