HOPEWELL, N.J. — A Trenton man being held at the Mercer County Correction Center on a murder charge beat up a corrections officer last month until he was unconscious and fell to the floor, then stomped on the officer’s head, prosecutors said yesterday.

The officer, James DePalma, is out on medical leave indefinitely as a result of injuries sustained from an assault that occurred in the line of duty, county spokeswoman Julie Willmot said in an e-mail yesterday.

Douglas Battle, 21, was charged with second-degree aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury in connection with the July 19 incident. Battle’s attorney said his client and the officer got into a verbal argument but no punches were thrown.
