FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - An 87-year-old inmate at the Fairbanks Correctional Center has died.

The Alaska Department of Corrections announced the death of Don Murphy in a Monday release.

Murphy was pronounced dead Sunday morning after being taken to the hospital.

Corrections spokeswoman Sherrie Daigle says officials suspect he died of natural causes, but an autopsy will be performed.

Murphy had been in jail since April 15, when he was arrested on an outstanding warrant charging him with sexual abuse of a minor and possession of child pornography.
