ONTARIO, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon prison inmate has been charged with aggravated murder in the death of another inmate.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://is.gd/GSRG2e) that 37-year-old Michael Lay is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 17 in Malheur County, where the Snake River Correctional Institution is based.

He’s accused of killing 22-year-old Michael Teves in February. The cause of death has not been disclosed.

Lay was sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison in November 2008 for a gunpoint robbery at a Portland restaurant and later attacking a Multnomah County jail deputy.

Teves was convicted of second-degree assault in Lane County in 2014. His earliest release date was Dec. 9.
