Pye, who was already serving time for one count of first-degree murder, one count of aggravated second-degree battery and one count of second-degree cruelty to juveniles, will receive additional charges as a result of the scuffle. He will be charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated battery on a correctional officer.
