PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate who is accused of killing four people will remain at the Riverside Regional Jail despite his paranoia jail employees are trying to poison him.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1diJllP ) reports the attorney for 48-year-old Alexander R. Hill Jr. said Thursday he has been starving himself and went at least 10 consecutive days without water or food because he thinks jail workers are trying to kill him with poison.

A Judge denied the motion to transfer Hill to a different facility.

Hill is accused of killing four generations of a Petersburg family in 2014. Authorities say 67-year-old Pauline Wilkins and 46-year-old Vicki Chavis-Ansar were fatally stabbed and 22-year-old Tanique Chavis and her son, 2-year-old Delvair Chavis, died in a house fire set by Hill.
