|Accused murderer sentenced for threatening other inmates|
Accused murderer Philip Butler was given a 35-day jail sentence this week for threatening two other inmates in Her Majesty's Penitentiary last July.
Butler, 36, pleaded guilty to the charges, and told the court there was no excuse for his actions.
On July 13, Butler got into an argument with a fellow inmate after the other man called Butler a "f---ing rat." Butler threatened to kill the man and they got into a physical altercation, with Butler pinning the man down and punching him. No injuries were sustained by either inmate.
The following week, an incident occurred in the prison that resulted in all inmates being confined to their cells. Butler reportedly grew agitated, and told correctional officers that a fellow inmate had been making fun of his late friend. He told an officer, "I'm going to kill him when I get out of this cell."
