TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A convicted killer serving 20 years to life has been handed a life sentence for killing an inmate at a northern Ohio prison.
A judge in Toledo sentenced 26-year-old Dustin Lynch on Tuesday to life without parole.
Lynch had pleaded no contest in the strangling of Arturo Lopez last March at the Toledo Correctional Center.
The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/1gkVqHf ) in Toledo reports that the 26-year-old Lynch already was serving a sentence for killing a 17-year-old girl in Medina County in 2002.
There have four fatal inmate attacks at the Toledo prison in just over the last year.
Records show violence at the prison rose after the state started doubling up inmates in the same cell to deal with overcrowding.
