      Inmate loses portion of an ear in jail fight

      Charles Wolken, 42

      A fight between two inmates leaves one without much of his ear.

      In the probable cause statement, authorities say Charles Wolken, 42, of Glenwood bit off a portion of another inmates' ear.

      Authorities say the fight happened Wednesday in the day room of the Schuyler County Jail in Lancaster.

      The injured inmate was taken to a hospital, where the emergency room doctor was unable to re-attach the ear.

      Wolken is charged with first degree assault, a Class A Felony, and remains at the jail with a new bond set at $50,000 cash only.
