OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A Utah teenager convicted of killing his two younger brothers last year will be sent to adult prison after an attack on a fellow inmate at a juvenile detention center.

The judge’s sentence handed down Monday undoes a plea deal that 16-year-old Aza Vidinhar of West Point struck with prosecutors last year in the stabbing deaths of his brothers, ages 4 and 10.

The deal called for Vidinhar to be held in an Ogden juvenile detention center until he turned 21, but that was dependent on his behavior.

Prosecutors say that the November assault shows Vidinhar is a danger to himself and others. He pleaded guilty to assault by a prisoner.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1N2x0iy) reports that Vidinhar’s attorney, James Retallick, acknowledged that the previous offenses mean his client will go to prison.
