OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma County jail inmate has died and authorities say the death is likely due to natural causes.

Authorities say 59-year-old Larry Prather of Oklahoma City died Friday.

Details of the death were not immediately released, but acting Sheriff P.D. Taylor told The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/2rPhjZK ) that Prather was diabetic.

Prather had been arrested in February on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, assaulting a peace officer and two counts of domestic assault.

The domestic assault charges were dismissed last week, while Prather was ordered then to stand trial on the other charges.
