A man accused of second-degree murder has died after being beaten inside the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre. 

Marco Michaud, 36, was pronounced dead after he was taken off of life support this week. 

An attack on April 11 left him brain dead and in an induced coma. 

Three men have been charged with attempted murder: Mohamed Barkhadle, 32, Pierre Senatus, 22, and Jimmy St. Hilaire, 19. 

Michaud's death marks Ottawa's eleventh homicide of 2018.
