Man accused of killing Md. inmate pleads guilty to lesser charges
From the Associated Press: The last of three men charged with murdering a fellow state prison inmate from Prince George's County has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in Hagerstown.
Thirty-year-old Chad Cirigliano pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit second-degree assault and was sentenced to an additional 10 years. Cirigliano was already serving a 10-year sentence for a 2004 burglary conviction in Worcester County.
Prosecutors dropped first-degree murder, assault and robbery charges stemming from the April 2008 death of Armando Fernandez, a convicted child sexual abuser.
Fernandez died two months after he was attacked at the Roxbury Correctional Institution. State police had his body exhumed for an autopsy that concluded his death was a homicide.
