GREAT FALLS - An inmate at the Cascade County jail is charged with felony assault with a weapon after another inmate was stabbed during a Bible study session.

The Great Falls Tribune reports 21-year-old Jory Russell Strizich was charged with using a homemade weapon to stab Daniel Dahlin on Sunday night.

Prosecutors allege five men were holding a Bible study session in one of the cells when Strizich walked in and attacked Dahlin, stabbing him several times in the face and neck.

Dahlin told investigators Strizich may have targeted him believing he had complained to jail staff about Strizich.

Strizich's made an initial court appearance Monday and his bail on the assault charge was set at $50,000. He also is awaiting trial on charges of escape, theft and criminal endangerment.
