Convicted killer Hollister dies in Kansas prison

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A man convicted in 2011 in the death of a 58-year-old woman has died at the El Dorado Correctional Facility.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/149t2AW) that 61-year-old Roger Hollister died Wednesday at the prison.

Jeremy Barclay, spokesman for the Kansas Department of Corrections, said the prison couldn't immediately release details about the circumstances surrounding Hollister's death because family members were still being notified.

Hollister was serving a life sentence without parole for the first-degree murder of Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton. She disappeared in November 2009, and her remains weren't found until May 2010. Hollister was convicted of capital murder in Atchison County in 2011.
