Suspect doing life, so no charges in fresh killing


Prosecutors say they won't bring charges at this time against a convicted murderer accused of killing a fellow inmate at an Upper Peninsula prison because the suspect is already serving life without parole.

The Alger County prosecutor's office says it's prepared to charge Andre Adams should his sentence change in some way.

Life without parole is the mandatory sentence for first-degree murder in Michigan.

WLUC-TV says Adams is accused of killing 39-year-old Carlos M. Love on May 31 at the Alger Correctional facility in Munising.

State Corrections Department records show that the 39-year-old Adams is in prison for a 2006 killing in Wayne County.

Records show that Love was convicted of attempted robbery and weapons charges in Wayne County.
