A Utah State Prison inmate who told his rape victim "You're dead" after she testified against him in a Board of Pardons hearing has been charged with tampering with a witness.

Roger Gordon Bigelow, 28, Oceanside, Calif., has been charged in 3rd Circuit Court with one third-degree felony count, carrying a zero to five-year sentence.Bigelow is serving a zero to five-year term for forcible sexual abuse of a 17-year-old female.

Bigelow's outburst came May 13 after the woman testified against him and the parole board denied Bigelow a parole date and said he will serve the full five years.

Bigelow then stood, pointed a finger at the woman and said: "You're dead."
