Two inmates died in Orleans Parish within an hour of each other this week - the first from a heart attack outside the jail and the second of a stabbing inside it.

The sheriff's office says Shedrick Godfrey collapsed Monday afternoon during community service work with other inmates, and Chris Blevins was stabbed in the chest during a lunchtime fight which another inmate was stabbed.

Ortiz Jackson was booked with second-degree murder of Blevins, and Donald Moore was booked with attempted murder of the other inmate.
