LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say a 68-year-old inmate in a Nevada prison for securities fraud has died.

The Nevada Department of Corrections said Wednesday that John Englehart had been hospitalized five times since he was first sent to the High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs in May 2014. The agency didn’t say how Englehart died but said an autopsy would be conducted. Corrections officials say Englehart died at the prison’s infirmary.

The agency says Englehart was serving a sentence of up to eight years. The Las Vegas man pleaded guilty to defrauding a woman out of $25,000 when he promised to invest it on her behalf in two companies and didn’t.
