HELENA, Mont. - Montana State Prison officials say an inmate has died of an apparent hanging at a Colorado prison.

Prison spokeswoman Linda Moodry says 38-year-old Timothy DeHerrera was found unresponsive in his cell late Saturday afternoon. He was hanging with a sheet that was tied to a cell window.

DeHerrera's death is under investigation.

DeHerrera was first sentenced to prison in April 2004 for two auto thefts and assault on a peace officer in Yellowstone County. At the time of his February 2003 arrest, the Colorado Springs, Colo., man was suspected of stealing a minivan in Colorado Springs and a pickup truck in Wheatland, Wyo.

He was sentenced in September 2008 for riot and criminal mischief and later moved to a Colorado prison.

Moody did not say where in Colorado DeHerrera had been held.
