LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A Lincoln inmate serving life in prison for murder has died.

Corrections officials say 48-year-old Antoine Young died Friday at the Reception & Treatment Center. He’s been in prison since 2009, serving a life sentence for first degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony out of Douglas County. Officials don’t know his exact cause of death yet, but they say he had a medical condition he was being treated for.

A grand jury will investigate, which is the case anytime an inmate dies in NDCS custody.
