Inmate housed in prison medical facility dies at hospital
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A man serving time for second-degree murder has died at a Carson City hospital.
The Nevada Department of Corrections says 68-year-old Jesse E. Dennis had been housed at a prison medical facility before being admitted to the hospital.
A department spokeswoman, Brooke Santina, says Dennis died Saturday evening.
He had been sent to prison in August 2005 on a conviction out of Clark County.
An autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death.
