Phillips is suspected of killing his cellmate in a Central California prison. Prison officials said Monday, April 13, 2015, that Phillips’ cellmate at Kern Valley State Prison was found lifeless over the weekend and later pronounced dead. Phillips, 39, was once one of the nation’s top college football players. He is serving a sentence of more than 31 years. He was convicted of twice choking his girlfriend in 2005 in San Diego and later that year of driving his car into three teens after a pickup football game in Los Angeles.
