Prison guard says supervisor ordered inmate's death

MONTGOMERY - AL -

 

A former prison guard says the prison supervisor ordered the death of inmate Rocrast Mack.  The testimony came today in the trial of Michael Smith.  Former guard Scottie Glenn says Smith instructed prison officers to kill Mack.
Glenn has pleaded guilty to a role in Mack's death.   He testified on the first day of Smith's trial.  Smith is accused of fatally beating Mack in 2010, then trying to cover up the death.
Glenn testified that a female officer had been attacked by an inmate, and she needed help.
He says Smith then radioed officers to make sure they killed Mack.
Defense attorneys says Smith was merely responding to an officer's distress call, and did his job based on the information he had at the time.
