TUCSON, Ariz. - A judge has sentenced the last of four Arizona inmates convicted in a 2017 fatal stabbing to life in prison.

Reports say Tim Weaver was sentenced Friday without the possibility of release.

Authorities say he was one of four inmates charged in the death of inmate Joseph Zawacki.

Authorities say the state Department of Corrections responded to a report of an altercation and found Zawacki with multiple stab wounds.

Authorities say Weaver, Ryan Wayne Bohannon, Scott Mitchell Elrod and Christopher Gregory Simpson were arrested in connection to the fatal stabbing.

Officials say the other men took plea deals before Weaver was sentenced.
