RANDOLPH — A native of Randolph was sentenced to death for murdering four prison workers during a failed escape attempt two years ago.

Mikel Brady was the first of four inmates to be tried on October 12, 2017 at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution in Elizabeth City on charges of killing two prison guards, a maintenance worker and a sewing plant manager.

The 30-year-old was already serving time for attempted murder for shooting a North Carolina state trooper in 2013.

For the most deadly attempted break-out in the history of the state Brady will join more than 140 people on North Carolina’s death row.
