A man already in custody, charged with murder, had a bond hearing Tuesday for allegedly tearing another inmate's scrotum.

Marcus Escamilla is charged with assault by a confined person. The judge set bond at $50,000 and ordered Escamilla have no contact with the victim, Anthony Floyd.

On April 10, Escamilla allegedly assaulted Floyd in the law library at Douglas County Corrections. Floyd has since undergone surgery to repair his torn scrotum.

Escamilla is being held, without bond, for the April 2013 murder of Kenneth Gunia. The defense attorney who is handling that case was appointed to represent Escamilla in the assault case as well.

Floyd is in jail on a first-degree murder charge for the death of Rodney Hunt last October.
