LICKING, Mo. (AP) - A 53-year-old Missouri man convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl has died in prison.

David Owen, spokesman for the Missouri Department of Corrections, said Larry Mahoney died early Wednesday at the South Central Correctional Center in Licking.

Owen said Mahoney’s death was “unexpected,” and an autopsy would be performed. He said the department does not suspect foul play.

Mahoney was serving a 40-year sentence for two counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible sodomy and kidnapping from Greene County. He has been in prison since 2001 when he was sentenced for raping the girl repeatedly near Lake Springfield.

Owen said there were no other details about the death of Mahoney, who would have been eligible for parole at age 73.
