He could now get the death penalty...
TMZ reports that Joe Son, who portrayed Random Task in the first Austin Powers movie, has been charged with murder in the death of his prison cellmate.
Prosecutors might now reportedly pursue the death penalty. Son was already serving a life sentence in California's Wasco State Prison for torturing a woman. He allegedly killed his 50-year-old cellmate in 2011. The victim was Thomas Graham, who was serving a two-year sentence for failing to register as a sex offender. He was previously convicted for committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under the age of 14.
Son reportedly killed Graham with a combination of punches and kicks. The brutality of the murder will likely be a factor when prosecutors decide if they should pursue the death penalty.
