An Ohio prison inmate has been charged with three counts of murder for a 1992 killing spree in southeastern Michigan.

The Monroe Evening News reports that 68-year-old Laurence F. Lamont is accused with another man of abducting three men at stores in Michigan and Ohio and killing them in Monroe County, Mich.

Lamont has been in prison in Ohio for other crimes in the same crime spree. He came up for parole consideration but was denied release last month after pressure from the victims' families.

The new charges involve the abduction and killings of 36-year-old Frank Welzbacher of Sylvania, Ohio; Earl R. Ludlow of Temperance, Mich.; and 23-year-old Joseph Satcher of Toledo, Ohio.

Another suspect in the killings died in prison without being charged.
