A third man has been sentenced in the fatal stabbing of a fellow inmate during an attack at the Arizona State Prison Complex in Tucson, according to court documents.
Scott Mitchell Elrod, 28, pleaded guilty in August to second-degree murder in the stabbing of Joseph Zawacki, 46, while the men were in the prison courtyard in September 2017. Elrod was sentenced Tuesday to 16 years in prison.
Arizona Department of Corrections officers said Zawacki was targeted by Ryan Wayne Bohannon, 31, Christopher Gregory Simpson, 33, and Tim Westly Weaver, 52, in the early morning attack, according to Arizona Daily Star archives.
