MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - An inmate serving life at the South Mississippi Institution in Leakesville, Mississippi was found unresponsive in his bed Saturday evening.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections says 48-year old Troy Michael Daughtery had been in prison for almost 21 years and was serving a life sentence for capital murder.

Daughtery did not respond to CPR and no foul play is suspected. The MDOC says an autopsy will determine the official cause and manner of death.
