Waseca Woman Strangles Inmate 18 May 12

A southern Minnesota woman faces the possibility of 10 more years in federal prison for allegedly strangling another inmate with a rope. 45-year-old Felecia Thomas of Waseca was indicted Wednesday on one count of assault with a dangerous weapon. The indictment alleges that Thomas used a rope from a laundry bag to assault an inmate last June at the federal women’s prison in Waseca. The victim survived. Thomas is now currently incarcerated at a federal medical center in Texas.
