SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - 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.
