Added sentence for Walla Walla prison stabbing



WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) — A man serving a 41-year prison sentence for a double killing at Ferndale had another two years added to his sentence for a stabbing at the Washington state Penitentiary at Walla Walla.

Thirty-year-old Daniel E. Johnson was sentenced Monday in Walla Walla Superior Court on his conviction for third-degree assault. Authorities say he stabbed a fellow inmate who was talking on a phone Sept. 26 in a prison day room. Guards recovered the weapon, a sharpened steel rod wrapped with a cloth handle.
