AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Officials say an Austin man convicted in the shooting death of his wife after living with her corpse for nearly a month has died in prison.

A spokesman with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice tells the Austin American-Statesman (https://bit.ly/17AA2Lw ) that 69-year-old John Malcom Nordstrom III died Thursday from a heart attack in prison. He was serving a 50-year sentence at the Ramsey Unit in Rosharon.

Nordstrom pleaded guilty in 2011 to murder in the fatal 2010 shooting of 58-year-old Deborah Diane Gordon.

Police went their home after one of Nordstrom’s sons had stopped by the house and reported smelling a suspicious odor. Police found the Gordon’s body on a love seat, covered by a sheet.
