COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Investigators looking into what exactly happened when an Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center inmate was severely beaten say at least two more employees will faces charges in relation to the incident.

Officials say 51-year-old Todd Andrew Hollins stands charged with obstruction of justice and 36-year-old Olympia Latoya Tuten will also face the same charge when she turns herself in Friday evening.

Investigators say Hollins and Tuten failed to report the incident and lied to investigators about the events that took place during and following the alleged beating of 51-year-old Robert Sweeper.

Sweeper had a collapsed lung, two broken ribs on the right side of his torso and a fracture to his vertebrae, according to a report.

These additional charges come after former corrections officer Robin Smith, 37 appeared in court on Monday to face assault charges in connection with the incident.

According to a Freedom of Information Act request, Troy Rose, Rusell Sutton, Corretta Dansby, Timothy Harold, and two other as-yet-to-be-identified detention center employees have been suspended without pay for their involvement in the case.

Sheriff's Department officials say Sweeper is still recovering from his injuries and investigators are still working to determine if additional charges are necessary.
