Mississippi inmate dies after being hospitalized since May

A 64-year-old Mississippi inmate who was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction has died after being hospitalized since May.

Bobby Neil McFalls died at the State Penitentiary at Parchman. McFalls was at least the 51st Mississippi inmate to die since late December.

Several died during violence in late December and early January.

The U.S. Justice Department announced in February that it is investigating Mississippi’s prison system.

McFalls was convicted in 1976 in Harrison County. After being paroled three times, he last returned to prison in 2002.
