Farmington Inmate Charged With Violence

(Farmington, Mo) - An inmate of the Farmington Prison, 42 year old Howard Harmon from Independece Missouri, who is serving a life sentence for murder, is charged with two counts of violence to an employee of the Department of Corrections for attacking two officers.

Reports show Harmon is alleged to have started arguing with officers when told to submit to wrist restraints. Harmon is alleged to have used his closed fist to strike one of the officers four times.

The other officer wrestled Harmon to the ground as he was trying to hit and kick the two. Harmon started serving his sentence in 2012 after being convicted of first degree murder in the shooting death of 19 year old Sabrina Jones of Kansas City.

The crime occurred during a home robbery.
