Inmates stabbed in jail dispute

A Laclede County inmate accused of murder is now being investigated for allegedly stabbing two other inmates in the Laclede County Jail. Dustin Lee Combs, 28, is in the Laclede County Jail, awaiting trial for the murder of Mark Pitts in Laclede County on July 2. Combs, who has also been charged with a murder in Texas, allegedly stabbed two other inmates with a shank on Friday morning. “We believe the motive for the assault was an issue over one inmate in debt to the other inmate for coffee,” Laclede County Sheriff David Millsap said.
