John Geoghan, a former Catholic priest who was a focus of the Boston archdiocese's sex-abuse scandal, dies of injuries sustained in an attack by a fellow prison inmate. Authorities say Joseph Druce, serving a life sentence for a 1989 murder, has been placed in isolation and will face murder charges in Geoghan's death. Hear Toni Randolph of member station WBUR.
