Accused murderer refuses to shower, sickens other inmates

A Southwest Florida man accused of killing his wife and five children is rejecting his legal name and refusing to shower.

The Naples Daily News reports that a late June incident report indicates the smell coming from Mesac Damas' cell has gotten so bad it's making other inmates sick.

Damas refused deputies' orders and was sprayed with pepper spray after hiding under his bunk. He also says his name is no longer Damas, but COG, meaning Child of God.

Jail logs show Damas, who turned 38 on Wednesday, has refused to shower since June 4. He returned to the Naples Jail May 29 after 56 days at a state mental hospital.

He's been jailed since the 2009 killings. A judge will hear from doctors about his competency in August.
