3 Ex-Inmates Charged with Trying to Kill Correctional Officer

Three former prison inmates at a federal prison in southwest Virginia have been charged with trying to kill a correctional officer.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Heaphy said Tuesday that a federal jury in Abingdon indicted the three on attempted murder and other charges. They could get up to life in prison if convicted.

The defendants are 25-year-old Jose Corral, 37-year-old Oscar Jimenez Alcala and 37-year-old Domingo Baltodano. They're accused of converting a pen into a stabbing weapon and using it to assault a correctional officer at the penitentiary in Lee County last Oct. 16.

Court records do not list an attorney for the defendants.
