SALT LAKE CITY, April 20 (UPI) -- A neo-Nazi accused of killing a prison guard canceled his wedding in a Utah jail set for the anniversary of Adolph Hitler's birth, authorities said.

Curtis Michael Allgier, 30, canceled the planned Tuesday ceremony with his unidentified fiance, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

"There are no plans to reschedule," Police Lt. Mike DeNiro said. "We have no further information at this time."

Allgier faces capital murder charges for the alleged slaying of a prison officer three years ago at a Salt Lake City medical clinic, where he had been taken for an MRI scan, court testimony revealed.

Corrections Officer Stephen Anderson, 60, was shot and killed with his own gun after he unshackled Allgier for the scan in June 2007, the Tribune reported.

If convicted of capital murder, Allgier could face a death penalty.

Allgier also faces first degree felony charges of aggravated robbery for allegedly carjacking a doctor's sport utility vehicle outside the clinic, disarming a peace officer, aggravated escape, and three counts of attempted aggravated murder.
