FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man convicted of killing twin 6-year-old girls in 1991 has been sentenced for downloading child pornography while he was in prison.

Authorities say Damien Breding, formerly of Powers Lake, downloaded the images in 2002 while working at Roughrider Industries, the manufacturing operation at the North Dakota state prison.

Penitentiary officials found the images in Breding's cell in 2004.

KXMB-TV reports that federal prosecutors became aware of the incident after a review of Breding's file. He was arrested on the day of his release in December 2011.

Breding pleaded guilty in January to receipt of materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland on Thursday sentenced the 38-year-old Breding to two years and three months in prison.
