Authorities say SD prison inmate dies in custody

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota correction officials say a man serving time for possession of child pornography has died in the state prison.

Authorities say 48-year-old Jon Kendall, of Aberdeen, died Saturday night.

Kendall pleaded guilty in Brown County to three counts of possession of child pornography. He was sentenced in December to five years in prison.

State officials say they are investigating Kendall's death, which is standard procedure when an inmate dies while in custody.
