INDIAN SPRINGS, Nev. (AP) — Two Nevada state prison inmates housed at different facilities have died.

Department of Corrections officials say 63-year-old Spencer Anderson died Saturday at around 3:15 p.m. at the Southern Desert Correction Center in Indian Springs.

Anderson was serving 10 to 40 years after being sentenced in December 1995.

Prison records show Anderson had a parole hearing in October.

Court records indicate Anderson had other felony convictions including for conspiring to aid and abet a robbery.

Anderson's death occurred hours after 53-year-old Anthony Daniels died around 6:50 a.m. at a medical facility inside Northern Nevada Corrections Center in Carson City.

Officials say Daniels had been serving 24 to 72 months for coercion since March 30.

Coroners are planning autopsies on both bodies to determine the cause of death.
