WINSLOW, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say an Arizona prison inmate has died.

Arizona Department of Corrections officials say 26-year-old Fabian Lozano was pronounced dead last Friday at state prison in Winslow.

Lozano was sentenced out of Maricopa County and was serving 1 1/2 years in prison for aggravated assault.

He had been in custody since March 7.
