BOLEY, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Board of Corrections will be briefed on investigations into the deaths of two inmates at separate Oklahoma prisons last month.

The board that oversees the state’s prison system is scheduled to meet Thursday at the John Lilley Correctional Center in Boley.

Among the items on its agenda is a closed-door meeting with the agency’s attorney to discuss the death of 55-year-old John Leach at the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite on Jan. 15. His death is being investigated as a suicide.

The board also will be briefed on the homicide investigation into the Jan. 20 death of 33-year-old Christopher Glass, who was found lying on the floor of his cell at a private prison in Lawton.
