Constable testifies he wasn't required to enter cell to check on inmate who diedConstables Daniel Fraser and Cheryl Gardner are on trial in Nova Scotia Supreme Court for criminal negligence causing the death of Corey Rogers on June 16, 2016.
WINNIPEG — A Manitoba judge says an inmate who died of a morphine overdose probably got the drug from two other prisoners who snuck it into the jail in Kinder eggs.
Provincial court Judge John Combs is recommending corrections officers take more precautions to avoid drugs being smuggled behind bars by inmates escorted into the community for appointments.
Combs says inmates should not be told when or where they are going for medical or community visits.
He says inmates should not be able to use typical washroom facilities while out on visits.
Combs oversaw an inquest into the death of Jean Paul Beaumont, a high-ranking motorcycle gang member who overdosed at the Brandon Correctional Centre in 2012.
The judge's inquest report says Beaumont probably got morphine from two other inmates who conspired to sneak in drugs while one was on a doctor's visit.
Drugs were placed in hollow chocolate eggs and attached to a toilet tank in the hospital where the inmate was seeing a doctor.

HALIFAX — Two special constables with the Halifax police force have been found guilty of criminal negligence causing the death of an impaired inmate who suffocated in his jail cell after being left with a spit hood over his face. Daniel Fraser and Cheryl Gardner were charged with the offence in 2017 by the Serious Incident Response Team — the province's police watchdog agency — in the June 16, 2016 death of Corey Rogers. The victim's mother, Jeannette Rogers, let out an audible gasp in Nova Scotia Supreme Court when the verdict was read, as family and friends of the accused quietly sobbed in a back row.
