Conviction in Md. inmate slaying

By the Associated Press

A jury has convicted a state prison inmate charged with strangling the killer of two adolescent girls of voluntary manslaughter.

Thirty-six-year-old Christopher White had been charged with murdering cellmate Clarence Meyers Jr. in December at the North Branch Correctional Institution in Cumberland.

The jury deliberated about five hours on Wednesday before returning the verdict.

Meyers was serving two life sentences for setting a house fire in Hancock that killed his girlfriend's two adolescent daughters in 2009.

White is serving 23 years for a 1995 conviction in Wicomico County for kidnapping, larceny, assault and weapons violations.

No sentencing date has been set.

At first, I thought they were talking about Ronnie White. But since that was done by the corrections officers, we will never see a conviction...... or even a charge.
