Prisoner killed over robbery at Alajuela prison

A La Reforma prisoner has died from wounds inflicted in the institution.

The Ministerio de Justicia y Paz, which supervises the prison system, identified the dead man as Luis Angulo Palomino, 33.

He was convicted of  murder and robbery.

A dispute appears to have grown out of a robbery of some 5,000 colons, a bit less than $10.

The suspect is another convicted murderer identified by the last name of López , said the ministry.

Angulo suffered a wound to the stomach and died in the Alajuela prison clinic, said officials.
