A coroner and Correctional Service Canada will investigate the circumstances surrounding the death on Wednesday of a 56-year-old inmate of Archambault Institution in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines.

Ronald Jette, convicted of second degree murder, was serving a sentence since June 14, 1988. Jette’s immediate next of kin have been notified of his death, Jonathan Huet, assistant warden of the prison, said in a statement released Friday.

Huet, who was unavailable for comment, did not indicate in the statement how Jette had died or the circumstances.

“As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, the police and the coroner have been notified, and Correctional Service Canada will review the circumstances of the incident,” Huet added.
