FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – An Allen County judge found Deadrian C. Boykins guilty on Tuesday of aggravated battery for an attack on a jail guard where he used a metal cafeteria tray as a weapon back in Dec. 2013.

Boykins was already serving time after being convicted in November of gunning down 17-year-old Elijah Freeman in the yard of a Fort Wayne home in April after the two had gotten into an apparent argument.

In the December incident which took place on Christmas, Boykins apparently had words with the jail guard. Boykins then blindsided the guard with the cafeteria tray, causing serious injuries.

For the Freeman murder, Boykins was sentenced to 65 years. He’ll be sentenced for the attack on the jail guard on April 15.
