A death row inmate who was convicted of killing three people in Oklahoma City has died in prison.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says 37-year-old Jared Jones died Wednesday after being found unresponsive in his cell at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester.

The department said the cause of death will be determined by the state medical examiner.

Jones was convicted and sentenced to death for the 2003 shooting deaths of Joel Platt, Brian Galindo and Pam Karr in southwest Oklahoma City. Jones was also convicted and sentenced to life in prison on two counts of shooting with intent to kill for the wounding of two people in connection with the same incident.
