SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Four men who served time at a West Texas minimum security unit have been arrested on manslaughter charges in the fatal beating of another inmate.

Terry County jail records show three suspects were being held Thursday over the death of Joe Hernandez. The attack happened last July at the West Texas Intermediate Sanction Facility. Officials didn’t immediately provide additional information on the victim.

The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/14eQhZ1 ) reports Manuel Leal was arrested Friday in Bexar (bayr) County, where Jose Rafael Valdez Jr. was caught Monday.

Leal, Christopher McDonough and Arthur Maldonado were jailed in Brownfield on bond of $100,000 each. Valdez, who’s also charged with parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender, was held without bond facing extradition.

Details weren’t available on attorneys for the men.
