WEBER COUNTY, Utah – A teenager who pleaded guilty to murdering his two younger brothers is facing a new charge in adult court after he allegedly assaulted another inmate at a juvenile detention facility earlier this month.

Aza Vidinhar, 16, was sentenced to serve time in both juvenile and adult prison after a plea deal in connection with the murders of his two younger brothers. Vidinhar pleaded guilty to one murder in juvenile court and the other in adult court earlier this year.

Documents state that while Aza was in custody at the Millcreek Detention facility he used a broom to attack another male who is in custody, causing minor bruising and scratches. The document indicates Aza initiated the altercation and that the other inmate did not fight back. The incident occurred November 1.

Another document states the teen now faces a charge of assault by a prisoner, which is a third-degree felony. The teen remains incarcerated.

FOX 13 News does not name juveniles charged with crimes unless the individual is being charged as an adult, as is the case with Aza Vidinhar.
