Convicted Florida child molester beaten and drowned in jail toilet.

A convicted child molester in a Florida jail died after allegedly being attacked by his cellmate and drowned in the jail cell's toilet, according to Jacksonville Police Department.

Paul Dixon, 43, has been arrested on suspicion of murdering David Oseas Ramirez at the Duval County Jail in Jacksonville, Newsweek reported. 

Dixon, who was serving time for a murder charge he received at 17, killed his cellmate at the pre-trial detention facility after a verbal confrontation became physical.

After the beating, Dixon drowned Ramirez in the jail cell's toilet.

Ramirez was serving a life sentence after being sentenced in 2013, when he was convicted of lewd or lascivious molestation of an 11-year-old girl. It took the jury only 15 minutes to convict him.
