BUFORD -- An inmate at Phillips State Prison in Buford faces additional felonies after repeatedly stabbing a convicted murderer in the head last month, according to records.
Gregory Haines, 21, was booked at the Gwinnett County Jail last week on an additional charge of aggravated assault. He's since been released back to the prison system, records show.
Haines was serving 20 years for kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary in a Baldwin County case from 2007.
According to an arrest warrant, Haines stabbed inmate Charles Davis numerous times in the head on June 27 with a homemade "shank" at the prison.
Davis has been incarcerated since 1989, following a conviction for murder and other crimes in Chatham County. He is serving a life sentence.
Davis' condition was unknown Wednesday. A Georgia Department of Corrections spokesperson did not respond to inquiries about the case this week.
Information on Davis' crimes was not available Wednesday.
