TORRINGTON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Corrections says a 72-year-old inmate serving a life sentence for second-degree murder has died from a lengthy illness.

The agency says Alan J. Suliber died Tuesday at the Banner Health Community Hospital in Torrington.

KGAB-AM reports that Suliber was an inmate at the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution in Torrington where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of his 7-year-old stepson.

He was sentenced in September 1992 by Sweetwater County District Judge Jere A. Ryckman.
