Guards began to search the prison, which is when they found 30-year-old Faatimah Maddox alone with the inmate in an operating room that had not been active in two years, according to authorities.

Staff also found soiled sheets with a mixture of bodily fluids and hair in the room, officials said.

Maddox confessed to having sex multiple times with Demery, who is serving a life sentence for shooting a woman in the face during a 2012 robbery.

She also revealed she was three or four months pregnant and Demery may be her baby's father, The Augusta Press reported.
