The Wyoming Department of Corrections says a 72-year-old inmate has died from a lengthy illness.

The agency says Alan James Suliber died Tuesday at the Banner Health Community Hospital in Torrington.

Suliber was an inmate at the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution in Torrington where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of his 7-year-old stepson, Adam Franklin.

He was sentenced in September 1992 by Sweetwater County District Court Judge Jere A. Ryckman.
