A Corning man already spending time in prison for the 2012 murder of a Schuyler County man will spend more time behind bars after being sentenced Tuesday in Cayuga County Court Tuesday.
In February, Nathan Hand admitted he tried to possess a “slashing type weapon” while an inmate at Auburn Correctional Facility last year. Hand, who is now serving his 19-year sentence at the Southport Correctional Facility, received an additional 1.5 to 3 years in prison for attempted felony promoting prison contraband.
In 2012, Hand testified to helping his step-brother kill Daniel Bennett in the town of Dix. That same step-brother later committed suicide in Pennsylvania when he jumped in front of a passenger train.
