The body of convicted murderer Jeron Hawkins is on its way to the State Medical Examiner's Office. Authorities said he died after he was severely beaten in jail this week.
 
The 19-year-old was then rushed to Ruby Memorial Hospital with very serious head injuries.
 
According to Sgt. Michael Baylous Hawkins underwent organ donation surgery Wednesday after succumbing to injuries suffered during a fight with 35-year-old Anthony Young.
 
That inmate is being held in the jail under contract with the U.S. Marshals Service. The state has had an agreement to temporarily house federal prisoners for about a decade.
 
Baylous said Thursday the findings of the State Police investigation will be turned over to the Doddridge County prosecutor's office.
 
Hawkins had been convicted of first-degree murder last fall in a 2011 shooting outside a nightclub in Morgantown. A judge had granted Hawkins mercy meaning he could have been out of jail in 15 years.
