Two men have been sentenced to life in prison after admitting the murder of a fellow inmate.
Michael Andrew Parr, 32, and Nathan Mann, 23, admitted killing Mitchell Harrison at MHP Frankland in October 2011. They appeared at Newcastle Crown Court for sentencing today.
Harrison, originally from Wolverhampton, was found disembowelled in his cell. He was serving an indefinite sentence at the prison - which houses some of the UK's most high profile and dangerous prisoners - for the rape of a 13 year old girl in Kendal, Cumbria in 2009.
