SCHENECTADY — Medina Knowles’ killer faces up to another seven years in prison after his conviction this week in a jail assault, prosecutors said.
Raekwon Stover, 19, stood trial on one count of second-degree assault for attacking another inmate at the Schenectady County Jail in March.
The jury found Stover attacked the inmate from behind, punched him, causing facial fractures, bruising and a cut that required stitches to close.
Stover is to be sentenced later and faces up to seven years in state prison.
The sentence could run consecutively to the more than 26 years to life he is already serving in Knowles’ killing.
Stover received that sentence in August after a jury convicted him in the Sept. 15, 2016 murder on Schenectady Street. Knowles was 17 and the mother of a young son.
