A Nebraska inmate has been given 100 to 140 more years in prison for slicing and stabbing a prison caseworker.
42-year-old Patrick Howley said during his sentencing on Thursday that the caseworker started their disagreement, "and I finished it."
The caseworker, Jeffrey Laabs, was in the courtroom. He was surrounded by relatives and former co-workers. Laabs still works for the prison but not as a caseworker.
The attack occurred on April 10, 2011, at the Lincoln Correctional Center. Howley was serving 16- to 22-year sentence on convictions for robbery and driving offenses.
