The Somerset County Corrections Officer attacked by an inmate two weeks ago has died. The State Corrections Department has identified the man as Sergeant Mark Baserman. Felony Assault charges were filed this morning against Paul Kendrick just before Sgt. Baserman died. The Department of Corrections says that this was the first fatal attack on an PA Prison Officer in 40 years. Kendrick knocked the Officer to the ground and hit him multiple times in the head and face. Another Guard came to help and Kendrick assaulted him, too. Authorities say it happened February 15th after the Officer took a towel from Kendrick.
