MARIANA, Fla. (AP)– Florida authorities say an inmate who killed his cellmate last month while awaiting trial for killing another cellmate in 2015 is now in solitary confinement.

The News Herald reports 21-year-old Frederick Patterson III said he eliminated his 82-year-old cellmate Arthur Williams on Jan. 15, and informed correctional officers that “there’s one less kid molester on the streets.”

Patterson, a founded guilty robber, was sentenced Thursday to life in jail for eliminating 45-year-old Scott Collinsworth, a convicted robber, in the Apalachee Correctional Organization.

Patterson now deals with a first-degree murder charge. Williams, who presumably aimed to tempt a 9-year-old boy into his vehicle, had been ruled inexperienced 10 days previously and was being held in the Jackson County Correctional Facility waiting for transfer to a psychological center.
