A Las Vegas man convicted of fatally stabbing his brother in 1996 died in prison Monday night, according to the Nevada Department of Corrections.
Anthony Blunt, also identified as “Tony Blunt” in District Court records, died Monday about 10:35 p.m. at High Desert State Prison, about 40 miles northwest of Las Vegas, according to a news release. The 57-year-old was committed to the prison from Clark County and had been serving two back-to-back sentences of 10 years to life for second-degree murder with a deadly weapon, court records show.
Blunt did not have a roommate at the time of his death. His cause of death remained under investigation Thursday, and an autopsy will be scheduled, the department said.
