GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP)- A Delaware inmate convicted in the 1986 murder of a Maryland man has died.

The Delaware Department of Correction said in a statement Wednesday that 54-year-old Richard Thompson died Jan. 6 at an outside hospital, as a result of a prolonged illness. Thompson, of Cheswold, Delaware, was serving two life sentences at Sussex Correctional Institution.

Thompson was one of three men found guilty in the death of 42-year-old Bohdan "Bob" Woskres, whose body was found in Smyrna. The owner of Fairways Inn had testified that he saw the three men and Woskres engage in conversation and leave together. Police said Woskres was killed with an ax handle and knife.

Foul play is not suspected.
