FLORENCE, Ariz. -- Authorities say an Arizona prison inmate is dead of an apparent suicide.

Arizona Department of Corrections officials say 57-year-old Mark Moore was pronounced dead Thursday at the state prison complex-Eyman in Florence.

They say all inmate deaths are investigated in consultation with the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office.

Moore was serving a life sentence for first-degree murder and kidnapping convictions out of Maricopa County. He had been at the Eyman unit since August 1986.

Moore originally was sentenced to prison in March 1979 for armed robbery, kidnapping and sexual assault convictions.
