Anthony Steadham, 38, was discovered inside his cell Monday at 3:10 a.m. at the prison's maximum-security housing unit. His cellmate is considered a suspect in his death.
Steadham was taken to an outside hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:04 a.m.
Officials would not disclose the nature of Steadham's injuries or what caused his death. The prison does not release information regarding ongoing investigations, said prison spokesman Sgt. Tony Quinn.
Police have identified Steadham's cellmate, Maurice Woodson, 43, as the suspect. He is serving a sentence of 46 years and four months for second-degree murder, discharge of a firearm and assault with a firearm.
Steadham was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery.
