Hearing set for Ohio inmate accused in 2 knife attacks

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A hearing is planned for an Ohio inmate accused in a 2017 knife attack on four other prisoners and a guard’s stabbing in 2018.

Inmate Greg Reinke (RAN’-kee) was already serving a life sentence for aggravated murder in Cleveland when the knife attacks happened.

He has pleaded not guilty to the attacks, both of which happened at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. A pretrial hearing was scheduled for Tuesday morning in Portsmouth (PORT’-smith).

In a Jan. 30 phone call from prison, Reinke told The Associated Press that guards severely beat him after he was transferred to the state supermax in Youngstown.

A prisons spokeswoman said there was no evidence of such an assault. Reinke’s attorney, Matthew Loesch, said he was not aware of Reinke’s allegation of being beaten.
