CONCORD (AP) — The second inmate convicted in a fatal attack on another prisoner believed to have snitched on members of a white supremacist gang has been sentenced to 38 ½ years.
The Concord Monitor reports Brotherhood of White Warriors members William Edic and Thomas Milton lured the victim into a third-floor cell block and jumped him. The 42-year-old victim died from his injuries 16 months later.
The gang had suspected the victim of snitching on their members. Another inmate was later revealed to be the informant.
Edic's public defenders asked Judge Richard McNamara to choose a sentence that would punish, but not exceed what was necessary for rehabilitation. McNamara chose the full amount requested by prosecutors.
Milton received the same sentence earlier this month in Merrimack County Superior Court.
