MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison in the stabbing death of a fellow patient at AltaPointe Health Systems in Alabama.

Assistant District Attorney Keith Blackwood tells Al.com (https://bit.ly/1rffy4r ) on Thursday that 24-year-old Razellius Mills pleaded guilty to killing 32-year-old Derrick Woods in 2012. Prosecutors say Mills removed Woods’ intestines from his abdomen then cut them off during the murder.

A staff member was cooking dinner for residents in the facility when the stabbing took place. Faculty members were alerted of the stabbing by another resident who found the body.

The AltaPointe facility houses patients with mental behavioral disorders. The facility serves about 13,000 patients and runs 20 adult group homes with a total of 171 beds in various Mobile County neighborhoods.
