     GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) – Wyoming authorities say a state inmate has
died in a community corrections center in Gillette.
     The Department of Corrections said Monday that 49-year-old
Steven Larry Washek died Friday after an illness.
     A written statement from the department offers no details. It
says an autopsy has been ordered.
     Washek was serving two to five years for a conviction of family
violence battery.
     He was sentenced on Sept. 7, 2007, in Campbell County.
     He had been transferred to the Gillette center in August from
the medium-security state prison in Torrington.
