WASHINGTON COUNTY, AR -- Two inmates pleaded not guilty Wednesday to raping and beating their cellmate.

Deputies say Javaugntaiye Willis and J'Donta Britt raped and tortured their cellmate over the course of 16 hours. Both men pleaded not guilty to multiple charges stemming from the incident.

Their next court date is scheduled for April 14th.

Back in December, the Washington County Sheriff's Office conducted an internal investigation after an inmate was raped and tortured by two of his cellmates.

According to court documents, Willis and Britt beat the victim, forced him to perform oral sex, and to drink their urine from a toilet bowl over a period of 16 hours starting on Thursday, December 12. The men also used a homemade weapon to cut the victim's back.

The three men, and a fourth witness were sharing a cell in the segregation pod, which means they're on lock down for 23 hours each day.
