PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - One of Rhode Island's most notorious killers wants to return to the Ocean State in March to argue his latest appeals, according to papers filed at Rhode Island Supreme Court.
Craig Price, who serves as his own lawyer, is currently serving a 25-year criminal contempt sentence in Florida, for defying a judge's order to undergo psychological testing.
He is asking the court to throw out that contempt sentence, calling it "unduly harsh and unconstitutional."
Price had been locked up since 1989, when he confessed to killing four of his neighbors including a Warwick mother and her two children. He was 15 at the time and state law would have freed him on his 21st birthday. But other convictions and violence in prison have kept him behind bars since then.
"Clearly this person belongs in jail. He has no regard for society. He clearly has no regard for his fellow human beings going back to his initial charges of murder and he deserves to be in jail," said RI Atty. General Peter Kilmartin.
Rhode Island officials say Price is a security risk and bringing him back to the Ocean State would be costly.
