BISHOPVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have charged three inmates with killing a fellow South Carolina prisoner, including one with at least seven weapons violations during his decade in custody.

Arrest warrants say the men entered 35-year-old Ae Kingratsaiphon’s cell at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville on June 22 and stabbed him and another inmate with a homemade knife. The other inmate survived.

Prison records show 29-year-old Terrance Griffin has been disciplined more than two dozen times - seven of them for having a weapon - since he was sentenced to 30 years for voluntary manslaughter in Charleston County in 2006.

Also charged with murder are 27-year-old Michael Wylie Jr., serving 16 years for attempted murder from York County and 20-year-old Quintin Lumpkin, serving 15 years for attempted armed robbery and assault from Orangeburg County.
