Prosecutor Dwight Scroggins charged King Tuesday with murdering his cellmate, Michael Bozarth, while both were confined in the Buchanan County Jail on June 11.

A preliminary autopsy report states that Bozarth, 25, was strangled to death in the locked cell at about 2:20 a.m. The only other person in the cell was 29-year-old King.

In January, Bozarth, a registered sex offender from St. Joseph, was sentenced to spend 90 days in jail as a result of pleading guilty to third-degree assault. He remained in custody on other pending charges.

King was found guilty by a jury last month of murdering his son. Seven-year-old Jeremiah Lamm’s body was found in January 2012 in King’s burned-out mobile home in Harrison County. The jurors convicted King on charges of first-degree murder, arson and felony child abuse. The defendant was being held in the jail awaiting sentencing for that death.

Judge Ronald Taylor denied the defendant’s request for bond. Taylor ordered the defendant to be brought back to court at 10:30 a.m. July 23 for his next hearing.

The defendant told the court that he’d have to hire a public defender for this second murder trial.
