An inmate in prison for murder died Saturday, the Nevada Department of Corrections said.
Tam Nguyen, 63, was pronounced dead about 8:35 a.m. Saturday in the infirmary at High Desert State Prison, about 40 miles northwest of Las Vegas, according to a department release Wednesday.
Nguyen was committed from Clark County in February 1999 after being convicted of first-degree murder. He was serving a sentence of 40 years to life with the possibility of parole, the department said.
The Clark County coroner’s office will determine Nguyen’s cause and manner of death.
