Ohio inmate who killed 4 accused of prison killing


TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- An inmate serving a life sentence for killing four people in western Ohio nearly 14 years ago has been accused of strangling a fellow inmate at a Toledo prison.

A grand jury on Monday indicted Lawrence Michael Hensley in the death of an inmate who was found in a cell last fall.

Authorities say Bradley Hamlin of Mantua (MAN'-uh-way) died two days later.

Hensley was sentenced to life in prison in 2000 after admitting to killing three teenage girls and a Bible studies teacher in Shelby County, north of Dayton.

The county prosecutor tells The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/XbxlVi ) in Toledo that it was one of the worst murders officials had ever seen.

Hensley was arrested after a standoff with police at a gas station where he had three hostages.
