The Nevada Department of Corrections reports an inmate died earlier this month at the Northern Nevada Medical Correctional Center.

60-year-old Cornelius Acres died at the Regional Medical Facility at the center on December 17th.

Acres was serving a life sentence for attempted capital murder in state of Virginia.

NDOC says Acres has been incarcerated on this case since June 1997 under the Interstate Corrections Compact Agreement.

Virginia authorities have been notified of the death. He had been hospitalized for an undisclosed terminal illness. An autopsy will be conducted.

Acres had declared he had no next of kin before he died, so NDOC is in contact with Virginia authorities regarding family issues.
