A 23-year-old Idaho murderer being held in a private Minnesota prison died Thursday in a Minneapolis hospital.
Jeremy Broadhead was among 200 Idaho inmates housed in the Prairie Correctional Facility in Appleton, Minn. Idaho Department of Correction spokesman Mark Carnopis said Broadhead’s mother, aunt and sister were by his side when he died at 3:12 p.m. MST Thursday.
Carnopis said he could not disclose what Broadhead died of but that he recently had been moved to the hospital because of an illness.
Broadhead was 14 in 1989 when he shot his father to death at their Meridian home. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison.
He was one of the first Idaho inmates transferred to the Minnesota prison in January 1996.
