Investigators at California State Prison-Corcoran and the Kings County District Attorney's office are investigating the death of an inmate as a homicide.

Delbert Miller, 69, was found unresponsive in his cell Thursday morning and was pronounced dead a short time later. Investigators identified Miller's cellmate, 20-year-old Kyle Osborn, as the suspect.

Osborn has been moved to a segregation unit.

Miller had been sentenced to 81-years-to-life for a murder in Humboldt County in 2008. He had also had a prior conviction regarding the rape of a minor.

Osborn had been convicted of sex acts with a child under 14, as well as burglary and robbery charges in 2009.
