(Oak Park Heights, MN) -- A man serving time in the Oak Park Heights prison for aggravated robbery and burglary may soon be facing a murder charge. The "St. Paul Pioneer Press" reports Benjamin Beck is accused of killing fellow inmate Shane Lawrence Cooper this week. Surveillance video captured Beck going into Cooper's cell shortly before the victim's body was found. Cooper was behind bars for raping a child under the age of 13 in Duluth and was convicted last year.
