An investigation continues into the circumstances behind the death of a death-row inmate at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary.
ODOC Public Information Manager Matt Elliott said at around 4:30 p.m. Monday, a correctional officer found Albert Johnson on his bunk bed unresponsive in his single-cell in the A-unit of OSP.
Johnson, 52, was serving a death sentence on a first-degree murder conviction out of Oklahoma County District Court along with life-sentences for shooting with intent to kill, forcible sodomy, first-degree rape, kidnapping, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to Elliott.
Court documents show Johnson was found guilty in 2016 for the 2014 death of 24-year-old Rachel Rogers and raping and assaulting another woman.
Elliott said the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine Johnson’s cause of death.
