A Pontiac Correctional Center inmate has received a 60-year sentence for murdering another inmate.
Michael Bragg pleaded guilty to binding Fabian Carrillo's hands behind his back, placing a plastic bag over his head and strangling him in December 2014. The Ottawa Times reports the men were in Pontiac's segregation unit at the time.
Livingston County State's Attorney Seth Uphoff said Bragg told investigators he killed Carrillo so he could remain in prison. The 35-year-old Bragg was set for parole in 2033.
According to Uphoff, Bragg decided to "take out" the first inmate he saw whom he didn't like and is now eligible for parole in 2093.
Bragg was originally serving time for several crimes in Cook County, including aggravated sexual assault. The 36-year-old Carrillo was in prison for a 2000 Chicago murder.
