LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Accused killer, James Mallory, will not get shock probation. The corrections officer he hurt in jail testified against him Thursday. Mallory will be locked up for several years while also facing a capital murder case.

During the hearing prosecution went after him to revoke his shock probation and keep him off the streets. Mallory is charged with assaulting Gentry and crushing her hand in jail.

"Found out I had a sprain, bone chip in my wrist and had to get three stitches," said Gentry.

Mallory was in a solitary cell in August when Gentry said he had an outburst. He forcefully yanked on a phone cord, causing the receiver to bang against a food tray window at his jail cell.

Before that, in June, Mallory threw urine on someone.

"He wasn't supposed to have any containers since he threw urine on an inmate. When we were searching his cell, he was threatening to kill me," said Gentry.

Mallory also accused of murdering 15-year-old Gregory Holt in an alleged plot against the teen's mother in April.

The case on Thursday though, connected to 2010 when he pleaded guilty to robbery and possessing a handgun. In the end the judge found that Mallory violated shock probation.

The judge ordered Mallory to serve the original eight year sentence. He will face his capital murder charge in court in November.
