YORK, Neb. (AP) — An inmate at the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women in York died Wednesday at a Lincoln hospital.
On Friday, Assistant Warden Tim Siemek confirmed the death of Amy Katzberg, 36.
Siemek said Katzberg had been receiving treatment in Lincoln since May 16 for an unnamed medical condition.
Katzberg was serving a sentence of four to 10 years for felony theft in Lancaster County. She had been incarcerated since November 2010.
A grand jury will be called to investigate Katzberg's death because she died in state custody.
