CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — A former inmate at the Hazelton Federal Prison in Preston County has been convicted of the murder of another inmate.
The jury found Stephen Crawford, 44, guilty Friday of assault of voluntary manslaughter, assault with a dangerous weapon, and assault resulting in serious bodily harm. Court documents said Crawford used a prison-made weapon to stab the victim multiple times. The inmate later died of his injuries.
Crawford faces up to 15 more years in federal prison for the manslaughter charge and faces up to 10 years for each of the assault charges. A federal district court judge will carefully determine the sentence.
The trial lasted for five days.
