(Virginia Dept. of Corrections)

An inmate has been charged with capital murder after authorities say he killed another inmate at Wallens Ridge State Prison in Big Stone Gap earlier this year.

William A. Sanders is accused of killing 55-year-old Donald Gary in May and was indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday.

Gary was serving a life sentence for a long list of charges including robbery and carjacking, according to an official report. He was convicted of kidnapping two women from a Danville trailer park at gunpoint in May 1998. Police said he then robbed a man at a local car wash and carjacked his vehicle.
