PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The family of an Arizona inmate, who was found lying in a pool of blood in his cell, will receive $300,000 from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Cari Gerchick, the Communications Director for Maricopa County, said the board authorized the settlement this week in the 2010 death of Wietse Ten Boden.

Wietse, 45, a Dutch citizen and permanent resident of the U.S., was jailed on June 1, 2010 on sexual assault charges, MCSO said.

MCSO said Lamont Rider, now 41, had been Boden's cellmate for less than 48 hours, when he brutally attacked Boden.

Rider was sitting passively on his bunk, when officers made the discovery about 4 a.m. on June 4, 2010.

MCSO said Rider was in jail on a minor assault charge, and had no prior booking history in Maricopa County. He did have a history of arrests in California.

According to MCSO, the security tower officer was watching two other detention officers conducting a cell block security walk in the opposite pod, when a nearby inmate sounded his intercom button saying he thought he heard cries for help coming from the cell next to him.
