Another Arizona Death Row Inmate Dies From Coronavirus
A death row inmate has become the third prisoner in Arizona prisons to die from the Coronavirus.
A federal public defender whose office represented Alfonso Raymond Salazar says the inmate died Thursday at a hospital from complications of COVID-19.
Seven other death row prisoners tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office is examining Salazar’s death and hasn’t yet determined a cause of death.
Salazar was sentenced to die in the 1986 killing of 83-year-old Sara Kaplan in Pima County.
