BILLINGS - A man accused of kidnapping and murdering Dejuan Laster in January will face more charges later this week.
Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder said Simon Elliot Jacobson attempted to escape from county jail in April.
Jacobson cracked some security glass during visiting hours at the jail. Detention staff was able to subdue him quickly.
While the additional charges aren't expected to come until later this week, Linder said he could face a charge of criminal mischief.
The county attorney is reviewing the incident.
Another inmate will also face additional charges including accountability with escape and assault of an officer.
Joshua David Heafner of Billings allegedly grabbed a detention officer during Jacobson's incident.
Heafner was involved in a March standoff with Billings Police Department on Custer Avenue where he surrendered peacefully.
