Update:
 
Back in 2007 at the Hazelton Penitentiary an inmate was murdered. Wednesday, a jury trial started for one of the men accused of killing Jesse Harris.

Kevin Bellinger and Patrick Andrews are charged with second-degree murder for allegedly stabbing Harris in a knife fight. Apparently, all three men knew each other before being incarcerated.
 
Bellinger is in prison right now serving a life sentence and he is eligible for parole, but if he's convicted of killing Harris he will face life without parole.
 
Andrews on the other hand, has been convicted of two murders before and if found guilty in this case could face the death penalty. Andrews' trial is set to begin in may of next year.
 
Bellinger's trial will continue Thursday so be sure to stay with 5 News for updates.
