LAS VEGAS (AP) - Records show a 30-year-old Nevada prison inmate
killed in a fight with another prisoner had been convicted of
murder in 2008 in Las Vegas.
The Nevada Department of Corrections says Gonzolo Antonio Tejada-Rivas died after a Dec. 16 altercation with another man at High Desert State Prison in Indian Springs.
