WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A Wichita Falls man that has been behind bars in the Wichita Co. Jail Annex for eight and a half months was handed another charge on Wednesday.

According to the arrest affidavit, on Monday, April 16, a Wichita Co. Sheriff's deputy was contacted by a captain at the annex in reference to a possible violation of Penal Code 38.11 Prohibited Substance of Item in a Correctional Facility. 

Several weeks prior, Sheriff David Duke was in the annex garage and said he smelled smoke at the time. 

Sheriff Duke saw inmate Michael Scott Kightlinger, 44, coming from the area and believed he was the source of the smell, according to arrest documents.

However, there was no evidence of the offense at the time. A camera was set up in the area to try and capture any offense that was occurring. 

On April 9 and 10 the video showed Kightlinger smoking tobacco products, according to deputies. When questioned, Kightlinger admitted to smoking a tobacco product and having a BIC cigarette lighter.

The third-degree felony charge was added to the list of charges against Kightlinger who remains in the Wichita Co. Jail.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
