LAWTON (AP) — Authorities in southern Oklahoma say an inmate has died while in prison.

Lawton television station KSWO reports 54-year-old Matthew Morrow was found unconscious in his prison cell about 6 p.m. on Saturday. Prison staff and emergency personnel responded, but were unable to revive Morrow.

His body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Oklahoma City for an autopsy.

Morrow had been jailed since 2000 in a Lawton prison for several burglary charges.
