DRAPER -- The accused killer of a Utah prison guard who is also a white supremacist plans to marry a mixed-race woman in state prison next month.

KTVX-TV reports an Aug. 8 wedding is planned for Curtis Allgier and Erica Herrera of Sacremento, Calif. at the Utah State Prison in Draper.

Herrera says she is part Hawaiian and part Hispanic, which proves Allgier does not hold white supremacist beliefs.

Herrera says she has been corresponding with Allgier since before he was charged with the shooting of corrections officer Stephen Anderson.

Anderson was shot with his own gun while escorting Allgier to a doctor's appointment on June 26, 2007. Alliger has pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the shooting.

Herrera says she believes Allgier is innocent, but would divorce him if convicted.
