Murder Convict Found Dead In Prison

A man found guilty earlier this year of murder in Mercer County has died in prison.

Now, an autopsy is underway to determine why.

53-year-old James Crews died in the Kentucky State Reformatory in LaGrange on Saturday.

The warden says there are no signs of foul play.

Crews was serving a 50 year prison sentence for the 2005 shooting and beating of tobacco warehouse night watchman Darrin Maddox.
