Walla Walla prison stabbing extends sentence

WALLA WALLA -- A man serving a 41-year prison sentence for a double killing at Ferndale had another two years added to his sentence for a stabbing at the Washington state Penitentiary at Walla Walla.
Daniel E. Johnson, 30, was sentenced Monday in Walla Walla Superior Court on his conviction for third-degree assault. Authorities say he stabbed a fellow inmate who was talking on a phone Sept. 26 in a prison day room. Guards recovered the weapon, a sharpened steel rod wrapped with a cloth handle.
The Union-Bulletin reports Johnson was in prison for the 2009 beating deaths of his girlfriend and her infant son.
