Cecil New charged with assaulting corrections officer

A man awaiting trial for the murder of a four-year old boy was arraigned Friday morning on another charge.

Cecil New was charged with third degree assault for allegedly kicking a corrections officer.  It happened just before one a.m. Thursday.

Officers say New became disruptive during his move from one area of the jail to another.  Corrections officers controlled New with pepper spray during the dispute.

New is awaiting trial for charges related to the murder of Cesar Ivan Aguilar-Cano.  Cano was found dead by workers after a week-long search in July 2007.

New has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
