CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- An inmate at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City has died.

The Carson City coroner's office responded to the facility, and an autopsy will be conducted.
Ortiz had been incarcerated at the prison since May 2008 following a conviction for first-degree murder and kidnapping in Clark County. He was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison with possible parole.
