LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A 36-year-old inmate died Tuesday at an Omaha hospital, the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services said.

Winters had a tentative release date of Jan. 8, 2026.

A grand jury will conduct an investigation into the death, as is the case whenever an inmate dies in custody, officials say.
