Prison term extended for St John's man

Guard punched during incident

An inmate at the Isle of Man Prison has been jailed for a further four months for assaulting a prison officer.

33-year-old Donovan Wesley Kitching punched the officer on the side of the head on March the 10th.

It followed a tussle with four officers as they tried to escort the St John’s man to the prison's segregation unit.

The four months will be added onto the 10-year term imposed on Kitching in 2014 for causing death by dangerous driving.
