Prisoner charged with murder over death of inmate

BREAKING: Prisoner Gregory George Glebow has been charged with murder following the death of a fellow inmate at Maryborough Correctional Centre.

He made a brief appearance in Maryborough Magistrates Court on Thursday afternoon.

Glebow, 37, was led into court under the heavy guard of three uniformed officers and two plain-clothes detectives.

Another uniformed officer in a flak jacket was stationed outside the courthouse during the proceedings.

The 22-year-old prisoner, who was allegedly beaten to death in the jail's exercise yard about 2.50pm on Tuesday, has been named in court as Leonard Raymond Gordon.

Magistrate John Smith adjourned the case so a brief of evidence could be prepared and to allow time for Glebow to find a lawyer.

Glebow was remanded in custody to reappear on December 17.
