Death Row Inmate Dies In Prison Infirmary
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A death row inmate has died in the prison infirmary at Donaldson Correctional Facility in Bessemer.

According to Brian Corbett, a corrections department spokesman, 50-year-old Shep Wilson Jr., of Talladega County died of natural causes on Thursday.

Corbett said Wilson was awaiting a new capital murder trial. He had been sentenced to die for the November 1986 kidnapping, rape and murder of a store clerk in Sylacauga. 19-year-old Monica Cook of Sycamore was found dead several days after she abducted from a convenience store.

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office said Wilson had a long term illness.
