Con-ui to Get Life Sentence for Murdering Officer
SCRANTON -- An inmate who murdered a federal correctional officer will be sentenced to life in prison after the jury could not decide on the death penalty. Jessie Con-ui was found guilty last month of first-degree murder for killing Correctional Officer Eric Williams of Nanticoke. Con-ui was an inmate at the federal prison at Canaan in Wayne County when he killed Williams in February of 2013. Con-ui was serving a life sentence for a gang-related murder in Arizona.
