New York gangster, 37, serving life in British prisons for murder given extra 13 years
Gangster Clifton Jeter, 37, (left) shouted: 'I'm going to christen this unit in blood' before attacking Alistair Cadell and Liam Keates as they were escorting him back to his cell at HMP Manchester.
Jeter, who is in a specialist unit for violent inmates at the prison formerly known as Strangeways, left Mr Keates with a five inch gash to the back of his neck (right) and another wound across the knee after the attack. Jeter had already been sentenced to a 27-year life term in 2008 for murdering a father-of-seven in a bungled 'honey trap' robbery in Hendon, UK. Today, Jeter - who was nicknamed 'Yankee' - was convicted at Manchester Crown Court of two charges of attempted murder. The new sentence means Jeter will only become eligible for parole in 2048 when he will be 71.
