SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) – A 51-year-old man already in a Michigan prison for a 1991 slaying faces sentencing in April for killing his cellmate.

According to our media partners at MLive, Steven D. Sandison pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the Oct. 29 death of 67-year-old Theodore Dyer at Saginaw Correctional Facility near Saginaw.

Dyer, who was from Grand Haven, was serving 25-50 years for first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Sandison says he killed Dyer because the man was a child molester and Dyer wouldn’t stop talking about the case. Sandison says he hit Dyer and wrapped a cord around his neck.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 8.

Sandison earlier was transferred to another prison, where he is serving a sentence of life behind bars without parole for an October 1991 killing in Wayne County.
