ASP Investigates Another Prison Death

Ronnie Martin

Arkansas prison officials say another inmate has died after he was found unresponsive in his cell.

35-year old Ronnie A. Martin was pronounced dead on Tuesday at the Cummins Unit.

Martin was serving a 20 year sentence on a drug charge from Cleburne County.

Authorities are still working on a cause of death.

His death comes as officials and lawmakers look into the suspected drug overdoses of five inmates who died last month in Arkansas prisons.
