MCMINNVILLE, TN (AP) - Tennessee authorities say two former jail officers have been charged with tampering with government records following an inmate's death.

A statement from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says 22-year-old Zechariah Jacob Clark and 28-year-old Steven Thomas Mason were indicted on Sept.6 and arrested Monday. The agency says the arrests stem from the death of a Warren County Jail inmate in January.

The bureau says during its investigation of the death, agents developed information that Clark and Mason did not conduct a required jail walk-through. The statement says jail logs were altered at some point to show that the walk-through had been completed.

Neither man still works at the jail.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Clark and Mason have attorneys.
