Man accused in Brewerton killing tries to enter plea, citing harassment from inmates

Slattery told the court he wanted to enter the plea because he feels his life is being threatened, claiming he's being harassed by other inmates and asked the judge to move him to a different facility.

Corey Slattery - the man accused in the grisly homicide of a Syracuse man in December 2016 - attempted to plead guilty to the charges against him in Onondaga County Court Thursday.

Slattery is accused of killing Aikeem Hudgins, cutting up his remains, burning them and disposing of them in various dumpsters last December.

Slattery told the court he wanted to enter the plea because he feels his life is being threatened, claiming he's being harassed by other inmates and asked the judge to move him to a different facility.

"I've had inmates throw feces, urine and spit on me," Slattery said. "No matter where I am, I'm still subject to these threats. I've never been an escape risk. I've never even attempted to escape."

The judge denied Slattery's attempted plea, telling Slattery he could only accept a plea if Slattery was admitting his guilt, not because of perceived danger.
