SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Officials say an inmate facing a possible death penalty has died at the Seminole County Jail.

The Orlando Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1Qrpu3M ) reports that 64-year-old Michael Ross Friedman of Delray Beach was found dead Monday. He was accused of killing his ex-wife’s boyfriend in June.

Prosecutors say Friedman went to his ex-wife’s home in Winter Haven on June 24 and shot her boyfriend twice before beating her with a blunt object. They couple had divorced three months earlier.

He was charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and burglary.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office did not release further details on Friedman’s death.
