TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A Toledo prison inmate already serving a life sentence for the murder of a teenage girl strangled another inmate to death in March, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The patrol says Dustin Lynch of Medina, Ohio strangled fellow inmate Arturo Lopez to death on March 17. That is just a week after the patrol says Lynch scolded another inmate with boiling water and stabbed him in the back with a shank. Inmate Christopher Trent had to be hospitalized after that attack, but survived.
Lynch has been charged with the murder of Lopez, and felonious assault in the attack on Trent. He will be arraigned in Lucas County Court, but no date for his arraignment has been set.
Lynch was sentenced to serve 20 years to life in the Toledo Correctional Institution in 2003.
