Three men have been charged after another man was beaten at the Peace River Correctional Centre March 11.
Peace Regional RCMP say 28-year-old Dylan Gogan suffered serious injuries and remains in hospital.
The Edmonton Journal has reported that Gogan is in a coma and has been flown back to Nova Scotia to be close to his family.
The office of Alberta Justice and the Solicitor General had earlier said that an inmate at the Correctional Centre was found unresponsive in his cell March 11.
The three people charged, 18-year-old Kyle Malcolm Beaver of Edmonton, 25-year-old Dylan Anthony Wyatt Moberley-Horseman of Peace River, and 33-year-old Herbert Charles Wanahadie of Grovedale, are each facing a count of Aggravated Assault.
All three are due in court March 26 to 28, 2019 in Peace River.
Moberley-Horseman and Ramsey Carifelle are facing charges that include Manslaughter after 31-year-old Marvin Nahachick Jr. died in a Cadotte Lake house fire in May of last year. Their trial is set for February 19 to 27, 2019. Two youth are also facing manslaughter charges in connection with Nahachick's death.
Gogan and Stephanie Plamondon were charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault after a stabbing near Rotary House March 8. A man was taken to the QEII with multiple stab wounds but did survive.
Plamondon is due back in Grande Prairie court June 25.
A stay of proceedings was put in place for Gogan's charges April 11.
