PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island trial of a notorious serial killer who allegedly tried to stab a fellow inmate to death in Florida has been delayed at the request of the defense.

The Providence Journal reports 44-year-old Craig Price’s trial was delayed Monday to May.

Price’s public defender Michael Bryant declined to comment on why he requested the move.

Price is charged with attempting first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing inmate Joshua Davis with a homemade knife at the Suwanee Correctional Institution in Florida in April 2017.

He admitted in 1989 to several Rhode Island murders, and has served sentences for prison officer assaults.

His Rhode Island sentence ran out in October 2017, and a probation violation petition was filed by the state’s Attorney General for the alleged Florida assault. Price refuses to file a plea, challenging the legality of the charging document.
