The victim, Anthony John Mollman, died May 17 after suffering a heart attack caused by blows to the head during the nighttime attack inside the Grady County jail.
Six men who were in the same jail pod have been charged with first-degree murder in the death. A judge Monday ordered one defendant, Cody Sitlington, 31, to face trial.
Special Judge Timothy Brauer ruled after watching the recording made from a camera placed high in the jail pod. Prosecutors released copies of the recording to the media after it was played in court.
Mollman, 46, was an admitted drug offender who supplied methamphetamine to the Rogues Motorcycle gang. At the time of his death, he was a federal inmate being held at the Grady County jail while awaiting sentencing.
The judge is expected to see the recording again during preliminary hearings for the five other defendants. Those hearings are set for later this month.
