Prisoner Murders Cellmate To Get Death Penalty
He would be sentenced to death after killing his cellmate, but then he would go straight to hell. What’s the rush?
According to Mail Online
A prisoner murdered his cellmate by stuffing wet toilet paper down his throat and strangling him – the same way he murdered his girlfriend a year ago, it emerged today.
Scott Alexander Greenberg, 28, of St Petersburg, Florida, killed Kelly Damon Harding, 48, at Pinellas County Jail in the early hours of Sunday morning after telling fellow inmates he would rather be executed than spend the rest of his life in prison.
Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said it was the first time in his 31 years that he heard of an inmate kill another at the jail.
‘What’s clear is that he had a plan, and he decided to execute that plan early this morning,’ he said at a press conference.
The murder happened just minutes after prison guards performed a routine check. There was no surveillance camera in the cell.
Deputies heard gurgling and thumping before Greenberg shouted out: ‘I did it, it’s done!’
At 1am, Greenberg yelled to deputies that there was ‘a man down’ in his cell. Deputies found Harding unconscious and under cardiac arrest, and he was rushed to a hospital where he died.
The pair had just been put into the same cell together on Saturday night because they had been aggressive to other inmates and staff in separate incidents, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
Normally, Gualtieri said, the jail tries to keep violent and nonviolent inmates separate.
‘Single cell space is limited so sometimes that does not happen,’ he said, adding the jail was crowded at the weekend and deputies were forced to move people around.
Greenberg is now isolated and under supervision. He has a criminal record dating back to 2001 for drug possession, domestic battery and check fraud.
According to the state Department of Corrections, Harding since 1985 had served at least six prison stints for charges including burglary, drug possession and carrying a concealed firearm.
The jail handles around 3,000 inmates per day.
So if they were aggressive to other inmates…what did they think was going to happen?
