SCRANTON — A federal prison inmate has pleaded not guilty in the stabbing death of a guard at a federal prison in Wayne County earlier this year.


Jessie Con-ui, 36, was arraigned Tuesday in federal court in Scranton via video conference from the federal Supermax prison in Florence, Colo.


A judge scheduled his trial for Sept. 16 at the federal courthouse in Wilkes-Barre.


Authorities allege that Con-ui stabbed guard Eric Williams, of Nanticoke, on Feb. 25 in a premeditated attack at the Canaan Federal Correction Complex near Waymart.


Con-Ui was scheduled to complete a drug-trafficking sentence in September and would then have been returned to Arizona to serve a life term for a 2002 murder. Officials say he could face the death penalty if convicted in the guard’s murder.
