JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Missouri Department of Corrections says a man serving a life sentence in connection with a killing more than a quarter century ago has died in prison.

The department says 67-year-old Emil Oltmer died Sunday of apparent natural causes at the Jefferson City Correctional Center. Additional details were not provided.

Oltmer was serving a life term for Saline County convictions in 1989 of second-degree murder, armed criminal action and first-degree assault.
