WOODSTOCK — Authorities say a man accused of stabbing his mother to death and then attacking another inmate inside the Cherokee County jail also tried to grab a sheriff's deputy.

Michael Jacobs is in the Cherokee County jail, accused of stabbing his mother during a dispute Sunday.

Baker faces charges of felony murder and murder without malice in the killing of his mother.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

According to Sheriff's Lt. Jay Baker, the 21-year-old tried to grab a deputy about 2 p.m. Tuesday as he was escorted to his cell. The deputy wasn't hurt and immediately took control.

Baker said Jacobs on Monday grabbed the neck of a fellow inmate from behind as food was being distributed. The inmate wasn't hurt, but Jacobs was charged with aggravated assault.
