Inmate dies at Oklahoma State Reformatory

Posted: Updated:

GRANITE, Okla. (AP) _ State corrections officials say an inmate has died at the Oklahoma State Reformatory.

Officials say the inmate was found Wednesday morning in his cell with blood surrounding him. Officials say the inmate had a faint pulse but responders were unable to revive him. The inmate was pronounced dead about 10 minutes later.

Corrections Department spokesman Jerry Massie tells The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/19wGovj ) that the prisoner shared a cell with another man, who was secured in a separate room in the prison's segregated housing unit. No charges have been filed against him.

Authorities have not yet released the name of the inmate who died or a cause of death.

The Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite is a medium-security prison with a capacity of about 900 inmates.
