CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Opening statements are slated Tuesday in the trial of a state prison inmate accused of having tried to recruit another prisoner to kill the judge who sent him to prison.

PennLive.com (https://bit.ly/1nas28B ) reports that a jury was selected Monday in Cumberland County for the trial of 47-year-old Lance Greenawalt.

Authorities allege that Greenawalt offered money and property to a Camp Hill prison cellmate in 2010 to kill the Adams County judge who sentenced him to a burglary term.

Last year, he was sentenced to 35 to 70 years after being convicted of having tried to arrange the murders of two other men. Greenawalt testified that it was part of a “stupid, idiotic stunt.”

Prosecutors earlier separated the murder-for-hire charges involving the judge from the case involving the other men.
