State Prison Inmate Charged With Killing Cellmate

State of Ohio

An inmate at the Lebanon Correctional Institution has been indicted on charges of  killing his cellmate. Casey Pigge is accused of using a cinder block from his cell wall to beat and kill Luther Wade last February. He was already serving 30-years to life for setting a fire in eastern Ohio in 2009. Prosecutors say Pigge's low IQ prevented them from seeking death penalty specifications in the case.
