PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio man serving life in prison for aggravated murder has been sentenced to 86 years more for a guard’s stabbing last year and a 2017 stabbing that wounded four prisoners who were handcuffed to a table and unable to defend themselves.

The Scioto County prosecutor’s office says 39-year-old Greg Reinke changed his plea to guilty last week on charges including attempted murder for the attacks at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

Phone calls seeking comment from Reinke’s lawyer were not answered Tuesday.

Reinke was sentenced to 54 years for using a shank to repeatedly stab the handcuffed prisoners.

He was sentenced to 32 years for injuring a corrections officer. Prosecutors say Reinke and another inmate stabbed that officer 32 times. The second inmate’s case is pending.
