A killer who says he found God in jail, is accused of trying to kill again.

David Frostick was sentenced to life in prison for killing his fiancée, but shortly after that, police say he went after a corrections officer.

The attack happened last Wednesday. The Metro Corrections Officer was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital, but it's no doubt another bizarre twist to an already tragic case.

Two weeks ago at his sentencing hearing, Frostick told the jurors something changed in him.

“I pray that you’ll have closure. I’m sorry for what happened to Robin. If I could bring her back, I’d give my life,” said Frostick.

Seemingly remorseful, during his sentencing. The 54-year-old, convicted of killing his fiancé, Robin Jenkins in 2007 was a case that dragged through the court system for seven years.

The jury eventually sentenced Frostick to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 20 years. But just five days later, a new allegation appearedcharges of attacking a corrections officer at the Clark County Detention Center.

“That individual brought violence to the officer and the officer did nothing to start the fight,” said Lt. Larry Hadfield with Metro police. “During the fight, the officer was by himself, was struck with a flashlight in the face area, that became dislodged from his belt and was being choked out by the suspect's leg”.

In this brand new criminal complaint, Frostick is now charged with one count of attempted murder with a use of a deadly weapon and one count of battery.

District Attorney, Steve Wolfson says Frostick will appear in court next month on this new case and if convicted, he faces the possibility of more prison time.

“One might say enough is enough. But the bottom line is, he’s a violent man and the evidence will show and we felt the charges were appropriate,” said District Attorney, Steve Wolfson.

Wolfson also tells us, there is surveillance video of the jailhouse attack and that video will be used in court.

Frostick is now being held in a maximum security area inside the detention center.
