Wakefield - Two inmates may serve more time after be charged with a killing at a prison in the Upper Peninsula. Delorean Henderson and Michael Smith appeared in Gogebic County Circuit Court this week. Both are charged with second degree murder. They are accused of killing an inmate at the Ojibway Correctional facility in Marenisco, about 20 miles southeast of Ironwood. 26 year old Randolph Conner died in January. He had been beaten by two other inmates, and suffered a brain injury. Henderson and Smith remain in custody, but are now being held in the Baraga Correctional facility.
