LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 58-year-old inmate who suffered from chronic medical conditions died in a southern Nevada prison over the weekend.

Nevada Department of Corrections officials say David Mireles died Sunday at High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs.

He had been serving a sentence of up to 10 years after being convicted in Clark County of burglary and sexual assault. Authorities say he was sent to prison one month before he died.

Clark County coroner's officials say Mireles died of a heart attack and also suffered a number of other conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and hepatitis C.
