The Nevada Department of Corrections says an inmate has died at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

Authorities say Benny Manning died Wednesday while in the Regional Medical Facility at the center. He died of a chronic medical condition.

The 63-year-old was committed from Washoe County serving a sentence of 5 years to life with parole for sexual assault. For this crime, Manning had been incarcerated with the NDOC starting May 5, 1976. Since that time, Manning was granted multiple paroles, each being revoked, including one instance for grand larceny. He returned to NDOC most recently on August 9, 2006.

An autopsy will be conducted, and next of kin were notified.
