LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Corrections officers say they've charged an inmate with terroristic threatening after he allegedly told one corrections officer he was going to kill them the same way Bardstown Police officer Jason Ellis was killed.
It happened Tuesday morning, according to a criminal citation.
Authorities say 32-year-old Danny Early told the corrections officer that when he got out in eight days, he was going to kill the officer the same way Jason Ellis was murdered, allegedly stating, "I'll see you in eight days, Jason Ellis."
When Early was questioned about what he meant, he allegedly told the officer, "You will be pushing up daisies like Jason Ellis, the Bardstown cop that was killed."
The corrections officer wrote that, "given the opportunity," Early, "would cause death or serious injury to this officer."
