At Pruett's trial, prosecutors told a Corpus Christi jury that Nagle told him he could not eat a sandwich in the recreation area, and filed a disciplinary report.
They said that Pruett returned that afternoon and stabbed him with a sharpened metal rod. The disciplinary report was found ripped up, near Nagle's body. No biological evidence tied Pruett directly to the crime scene, and inmates who witnessed the crime offered conflicting testimony.
