An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner concluded that an inmate killed Tuesday at the Maine State Prison in Warren died of blunt force trauma to the head.
Alan D. Powell Jr.
Hunnewell is serving 40 years for killing his girlfriend. Powell was serving a life sentence for raping, stabbing and strangling a Waterville woman in 1989.
Deputy Attorney General William Stokes said there is no need to arrest and charge Hunnewell immediately because there is no concern that he will flee or commit new crimes.
Powell had served about 22 years of a life sentence for murder.
