GRANT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)  — Kentucky State Police are asking for help in finding a man charged with the death of an inmate.

Mark Basham of Paducah is wanted for multiple charges including manslaughter and being a persistent felony offender.

Basham has been indicted in relation to the death of Graves County inmate Rodney Evans.

Back in April troopers said Basham hid meth on his body as he was brought into jail, and later gave some of the meth to his cellmates.

One of those cellmates, Evans, died.

Anyone with information is asked to call KSP.
