LOUISVILLE, Ky -- Four inmates from the Clark County jail are charged with a brutal beating that sent another inmate to the hospital.

The suspects appeared in court Tuesday in Jeffersonville. Police said at the end of April the four suspects went into Michael Kuhner's jail cell and attacked him.

Kuhner suffered a head injury and will be at the hospital for several more days.

"Look you have to keep order in the jail when someone is arrested they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  People have loved ones in jail.  Their sons, their daughters, their brothers and they need to understand when someone is taken to jail against their will we are going to do everything we can to keep them safe," said Jeremy Mull, the Clark County prosecutor.

The victim in the attack is serving time for drug charges.
