Northern Nevada Correctional Center
A third prison inmate has died this month at a medical facility housed under the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.
Michael Rose, 77, was being treated for a medical condition when he died late Friday, prison officials said. He had been serving up to 20 years since September 2010 for attempted sexual assault of a child.
Two others died this month at the Carson City prison’s Regional Medical Facility.
Michael Johnson, 55, died Dec. 18 while serving a maximum life sentence out of Churchill County for second-degree murder. Officials said Johnson, who had been in prison since 2008, also suffered from a medical condition.
One day earlier, Cornelius Acres, 60, apparently succumbed to a terminal illness. He was serving a life sentence for attempted capital murder in Virginia; Acres had been incarcerated in Nevada since June 16, 1997, under the Interstate Corrections Compact Agreement.
The Carson City Coroner's Office will conduct an autopsy for all three men, prison officials said.
