LINDSAY, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma prison officials say a death row inmate has died.

Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie said Wednesday that 65-year-old Edward Bruce Primeaux of Ponca City died June 1 of natural causes at Lindsay Municipal Hospital.

Primeaux was convicted and sentenced to death for the July 2000 stabbing deaths of 76-year-old Warren David Littlecook and 61-year-old Julia Bear in their home in Ponca City.

Massie said Primeaux did not have an execution date set.
