CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa inmate accused of trying to kill another inmate has been sentenced to additional time in prison.

The Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1RUf1gf ) 22-year-old Michael Swanson was sentenced this month to 25 years in prison following a guilty plea of attempted murder.

A criminal complaint says Swanson slashed an inmate in the neck at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Coralville in November 2014. The victim required stiches for several cuts.

Swanson was serving two life sentences at the time for the 2010 shooting deaths of 47-year-old Vicky Bowman-Hall and 61-year-old Sheila Myers. The women were working at separate convenience stores at the time of their deaths.

Swanson was 17 at the time, and he is awaiting a resentencing hearing following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on juvenile sentencing.
