Md. inmate's March death ruled homicide
The Maryland medical examiner's office has ruled that a state prison inmate who died earlier this year after suffering a seizure was a homicide victim.
Fifty-two-year-old Wilbur Street was shot in the face in 1982 and developed a seizure disorder. He died in March after having a seizure at the North Branch Correctional Institution in Cumberland.
Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Street's death has now been added to this year's homicide total. The medical examiner ruled that Street wouldn't have died if not for the injuries he suffered in 1982.
The city has now recorded 195 homicides this year.
A woman was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison for shooting Street. Meanwhile, he was sent to prison after a 2003 assault conviction.
