A man accused of stabbing a prison guard was back in court this morning for a hearing of his formal charges. John Bridges entered the courtroom in a restraint chair.

Bridges was serving a life sentence for kidnapping and murder at the North Dakota State Penitentiary when he stabbed a correctional officer with a piece of metal. He now faces two felony charges of attempted murder and possession of contraband by an inmate.

Bridges' next court appearance will be a preliminary hearing. A date has not been set.
