CARSON CITY,(AP) - Nevada prison officials say a 75-year-old inmate has died.

The Nevada Department of Corrections says in a statement Saturday that Robert Moore died at a medical facility at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

He was sentenced to at least 10 years and up to 40 years after being convicted in January 2003 of sexually assaulting a child under age 16.

An autopsy will determine the cause of the Thursday death.
