Las Vegas, NV — A teenager in jail for smothering his young cousin to death has now been accused of stabbing his cell mate to death with a pencil.
Carl Guilford, 18, has been in the Clark County Detention Center since May, accused of smothering 6-year-old Christopher Montgomery with a comforter. His cell mate was 39-year-old Francesco Sanfilippo, in jail on 13 counts of possession of child pornography.
The other day, Sanfilippo was found dead inside their cell covered in a white sheet. The floors and walls were smeared with blood and Guilford was sitting on the top bunk with a blank stare. Sanfilippo had been stabbed several times with a pencil.
Guilford would first tell police that Sanfilip came on to him and grabbed his ass, leading to Guilford putting the older man in a choke hold. He says he doesn’t remember what happened after that. He would then change his story and claim that the Devil told him if he did not kill Sanfilippo, then the Devil would make Guilford kill himself.
So he claims he had no choice but to attack Sanfilippo while he sat at a table. He doesn’t remember what happened after he began choking the man, and doesn’t remember transforming the victim into a pencil holder.
This isn’t the first time Guilford has blamed voices on his murdering someone. He told police that after he smothered his cousin that the Devil told him “well done.” The dead boy’s mother told police that Guilford began acting strange after smoking laced marijuana, often speaking about angels, demons, Illuminati and other such nonsense.
Guilford has now been confined to solitary while some are questioning why he was allowed to have a cell mate to begin with. Personally, I think they should just rotate him in and out of the cells of other convicted pedophiles. It’s kind of a win-win for society no matter what the outcome, and would make for great television.Tags: Carl Guilford, Christopher Montgomery, Crime, Francesco Sanfilippo, inmate prison, mental illness, Murder, Nevada, pencil, Stabbing
