Man denies prison manslaughter

He has been remanded in custody

A man accused of killing an inmate at Lincoln Prison denied a charge of manslaughter when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court on Friday.

As previously reported, Samuel Harrison, 29, died in hospital from a serious brain injury on September 25 last year after an incident at HMP Lincoln on Greetwell Road on September 11.

He had been on B wing of the prison at around 8.30am when he was injured.

Emmanuel Dos Santos, 42, pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of Mr Harrison at the recent hearing on Friday, August 10.

Judge John Pina QC adjourned the hearing for a trial which is scheduled to begin on December 10 and he remanded Dos Santos in custody.

Samuel Harrison’s mother previously released an appeal for help too find out what happened to her son.

She said: “I would like to make a plea to anyone who saw what happened to him on that morning to contact the police and tell them how he received the injury.

“I have lost my son and his children their father and his family and friends just want to know the truth about the circumstances that have led to him being injured so we can start to try and understand why he died.”
