Man charged six months after inmate’s death
A man has been charged with the murder of prison inmate Mark Pollard six months after he died.
Abdulkadir Ali, 34, appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday over the alleged murder at Port Phillip Prison on February 26.
He is accused of causing Mr Pollard's death by "an act of violence done in the course or furtherance of a crime of violence, namely a robbery", a police summary reads.
Four others were due to be charged over the death, the court was told.
The 48-year-old alleged victim was taken to hospital but died three days later.
The alleged co-offenders are expected to face court at the end of the week.
