Australia's 'smiling assassin' killed in high security prison - Telegraph

Australia's 'smiling assassin' killed in high security prison - Telegraph: "locked in a maximum security section of a Victorian jail, he was bludgeoned over the head with the stem of an exercise bike by a fellow inmate. He later went into cardiac arrest and died.
The murder, if it is linked to Williams's criminal activity before he entered prison, would make him the 30th victim of a vicious gangland war, which he stoked between 1999 and 2006. 'the baby-faced killer' and 'the smiling assassin' Williams, 39, was serving three life sentences for the killing of five underworld figures.
With a minimum of 35 years before he was eligible for parole, he was due to be released when he was 71.
Kept under close watch by guards and CCTV cameras, it was assumed that he would eek out the next decades in jail, his infamy slowly dimming.
But someone had other plans.
After walking into the prison day room, which he shared with two other inmates, and which was supposed to be watched at all times by prison guards, one of the men hit him on the back of the head with part of an exercise bike. Williams returned to his cell and was later found having a cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at 1.47pm."
