Thomas Mallo, who stabbed an elderly neighbor to death when he was only 14 years old in Charleston, was sentenced Monday for a violent escape attempt from a juvenile correctional facility in Salem.
Mallo, 18, also was sentenced for the unlawful assault of a correctional officer during the breakout attempt. Those crimes will add up to 10 years to his already-in-place, 40-year second-degree murder term. Mallo pleaded guilty in 2010 to the murder of 82-year-old Phyllis Phares. She was stabbed more than 35 times.
A documentary profiling Thomas Mallo and his relatives will air next month on the Investigation Discovery channel. It is part of a series called "Evil Kin," which debuts on Wednesday.
The episode featuring the Mallo family will air Sept. 18. Filmmakers were in Charleston this spring, talking to neighbors, detectives and Eyewitness News Anchor Kallie Cart about the family and all of the shocking discoveries following Thomas Mallo's arrest for murder.
