|Inmate pleads guilty in stabbing attack on prison guard|
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio — A man already convicted in three slayings and serving a life sentence has pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated murder and other charges in an attack on an Ohio prison guard.
Casey Pigge was sentenced to 32 more years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday in the Feb. 20, 2018, attack on Matthew Mathias.
Pigge and co-defendant Greg Reinke had planned their attack on the correction officer at Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, prosecutors said. They said Mathias was stabbed with shanks that Pigge made of pieces of metal from the inmates’ beds, the Chillicothe Gazette reported.
