CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Department of Corrections says a Nevada inmate serving up to life in prison for sexual assault has died at a prison infirmary.

Authorities say 53-year-old James Reed died Sunday at the regional medical facility at Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

Prison officials say Reed suffered from a chronic medical condition.

Reed had been imprisoned since September 1993. He was serving a term of 10 years to life for his conviction in Humboldt County for sexual assault of a victim under 16.


Authorities say an autopsy is planned.
