JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a man awaiting trial for murder beat and raped a female corrections officer in a jail library.

Sheriff John Rutherford says a 26-year-old inmate used a makeshift knife Thursday morning to overpower the officer in the Duval County jail library in Jacksonville.

He says the officer was beaten but not stabbed. She was taken to a hospital, but her condition was not released.
