JEFFERSON CO. Ala. — A man convicted of killing four people may face an additional attempted murder charge after authorities say he attacked a deputy this weekend.


Scott Lamar Abbott was convicted on Friday of a quadruple murder in Hueytown.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office, Scott Lamar Abbott was not provoked when he attacked the guard.

The deputy had to have staples put in his head but is expected to fully recover.

On Friday, Abbott was convicted of capital murder in the March 2009 stabbing deaths of four people in Hueytown.

On Monday, jurors will decide whether to give him life in prison or the death penalties for the murders.

Abbott could face a charge ranging from first degree assault to higher.
