BRANCHVILLE - A Branchville Correctional Facility inmate who suffered an apparent asthma attack died Oct. 2 at Perry County Memorial Hospital, County Coroner Darrel Riley said this week.
Marci Howard, 44, had a medical history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma and was brought to the prison infirmary complaining of shortness of breath. An autopsy did not turn up any trauma and toxicology results are pending, Riley said.
Anyone who dies in custody is required to undergo a postmortem exam.
