Man pleads guilty to attacking two guards

Posted: Updated:

A man already given a life sentence for murder in Iowa has pleaded guilty to assaulting two guards in the Des Moines County Jail in Burlington.

Court records show Jorge Sanders-Galvez, of St. Louis, entered pleas Tuesday to willful injury and to assault on a correctional officer. He's scheduled to be sentenced Monday.

Sanders-Galvez was given a life sentence for his role in killing a gender-fluid Burlington teenager, Kedarie Johnson.

The two officers were attacked Dec. 10 by Sanders-Galvez and two other inmates. Court records say the two other inmates, Earl Booth-Harris and Bobby Morris, also pleaded guilty. Each was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years.

Booth-Harris is serving a life sentence in a different slaying.
