An inmate charged with killing a fellow prisoner at a high-security prison tucked away in the Appalachian region of eastern Kentucky faces a possible death sentence if convicted of murder.
In a filing in federal court in Pikeville, prosecutors cited the brutality used in killing 35-year-old Vincent Earl Smith Jr. while he was housed at the United States Penitentiary Big Sandy in January 2009, as well as Millner's repeated attacks on other inmates and prison staff and conviction for murder in Washington, D.C.
Millner is scheduled for arraignment in federal court in Lexington on Tuesday.
