A 43-year-old state prison inmate has died in Sioux Falls.
The state Department of Corrections says Matthew Casey died Tuesday at a Sioux Falls hospital following an extended illness.
He was serving a 15-year sentence out of Minnehaha County for first-degree robbery.
The Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating, which is standard procedure in the death of an inmate. An autopsy will be done.
