    A Wise County, Virginia grand jury has indicted a prisoner at the state's super max Red Onion Prison for charges related to a Dec. 2 attack on two officers.

    Keith McDuffie, 31, is charged with one count of attempted capital murder of a law enforcement officer, two counts of assaulting a corrections officer and one count of prisoner in possession of a deadly weapon, according to court information obtained by WCYB.
