EASTON, Pa. (AP) - A judge has rejected a request from a man charged in a slaying at an Easton motel that he be moved to a different prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Jeffrey Knoble of Easton is charged in Northampton County in the March death of 32-year-old Andrew “Beep” White, who authorities called a “good Samaritan” who rented a Quality Inn room for Knoble because he had no place to stay.

Knoble said people at the Easton prison had ties to the victim, but a prison official said an inmate was transferred and the guard is kept away from Knoble.

Judge Emil Giordano cited that statement Wednesday and also said alleged threats had been investigated and found to be “meritless.”

He also rejected Knoble’s request that he be tried separately on homicide and terroristic threats charges.
