A 29-year-old prisoner who slit the neck of another inmate has been given 18 to 20 more years in a Nebraska prison.

Online court records say Anthony Escamilla was sentenced earlier this week. He'd pleaded no contest to attempted felony assault. Prosecutors had reduced the charge in return for Escamilla's plea.

He was convicted of cutting the other prisoner on Aug. 12, 2012, at the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center in Lincoln. Officials say Escamilla used a weapon made from a melted toothbrush head and a razor blade.

Less than two months earlier he was given 60 to 90 years in prison for shooting a man in Lincoln.
