CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Prison officials say a 28-year-old inmate died in the Northern Nevada Correctional Center’s mental health unit late Friday.

The Nevada Department of Corrections said Monday that officers found Billy Williams hanging inside his single cell.

The agency says Williams was serving a sentence of up to 15 years for attempted sexual assault and attempted robbery when he received up to five years more for committing battery in prison.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is expected to conduct an autopsy.
