CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A federal inmate in West Virginia has been sentenced to life in prison in the fatal stabbing of another inmate.

Thirty-six-year-old Kevin Marquette Bellinger was sentenced Monday in federal court in Clarksburg.

Prosecutors say Bellinger and another inmate used homemade knives to stab 28-year-old Jesse Harris in October 2007 at the U.S. Penitentiary at Hazelton.

Bellinger had been previously convicted in the case and sentenced to life in prison in 2014. That conviction was overturned on appeal in June 2016.
