LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A grand jury will be called to investigate the death of an inmate at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln.
State prison officials say 44-year-old Oddie Granger died at the prison Wednesday morning. Nebraska Department of Correctional Services spokeswoman Laura Strimple says in a news release that while the cause of Granger's death has not been determined, he was being treated for an undisclosed medical condition.
Granger began serving his 5.5-year prison sentence in May 2019 on three felony DUI counts. State law requires a grand jury investigation any time a person dies in police or prison custody.
