LAS VEGAS (AP) - An inmate who has been on and off Nevada's death row for three decades has died at a Las Vegas hospital after
suffering from an unidentified medical condition.
The Department of Corrections says 56-year-old Robert Farmer died of natural causes Tuesday night.
Farmer was handed a death sentence after he was convicted of two
counts of murder, kidnapping, robbery and possession of a stolen vehicle. He's blamed in the deaths of Thomas Kane, whose car he stole, and taxi driver Greg Gelunas.
The Nevada Supreme Court vacated his death sentence in 2007. Farmer filed federal court challenges when the state prosecutors sought to reinstate it.
A federal appeals court in February ruled prosecutors could seek to re-impose the death sentence.
Farmer was also serving a life prison sentence.
