IONE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate at a Northern California prison as a possible homicide.

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says Wayne Bradley was found unresponsive in his cell at Mule Creek State Prison around 2:30 a.m. Saturday. The 50-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators have named Bradley's 35-year-old cellmate as a suspect.

Bradley had been in prison since 2009, serving a 25-year sentence for robbery.

Mule Creek, located about 100 miles northeast of San Francisco, houses approximately 3,700 minimum-, medium- and maximum-security inmates.
