FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A man already sentenced to 65 years in prison for murder has had more time added to his sentence for attacking a jail guard in Fort Wayne.

Nineteen-year-old Deadrian Boykins was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years for aggravated battery.

The Journal Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1ku1YTU ) authorities said he attacked Allen County jailer Quinton Greer on Christmas morning with a plastic lunch tray, fracturing bones in Greer’s face, smashing his nose and causing permanent hearing and vision damage.

Boykins said he was upset because Greer turned off the television.

The attack came several days after Boykins was sentenced for killing 17-year-old Elijah Freeman. A judge sentenced Boykins to five more years than prosecutors had sought in that case after he cursed at Freeman’s mother as she testified in court.
