The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Ignacio “Nacho” Gomez died of cardiac arrest Sunday night in his cell.
Gomez was taken to a nearby hospital where he died, a prison spokesman told the Chronicle.
He was convicted of a 1996 slaying of three teenagers who allegedly vandalized his mother’s house. Gomes and his brothers got in a fight with the trio, Gomez shot them and then with his brothers took the bodies to the desert and buried them.
Gomez was convicted in 1998.
