Inmate Aaron Stone confessed to the killing of cellmate Riley Walker. Staff immediately responded, secured Stone and confirmed Walker’s death.

ODOC Inspector General’s investigators are on the scene working to gather more information.

According to a press release from ODOC, staff at Lawton Correctional Facility discovered the homicide in the early morning hours of Monday, September 6.

Stone is currently serving 14 life sentences following being convicted on multiple charges in 2011.

The convictions stem from an incident in which Stone broke into a family’s home.

Stone was found guilty on two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of forcible sodomy, three counts of kidnapping, three counts of pointing a firearm, one count of first-degree robbery and a count of animal cruelty.

Stone’s victim, Walker, was serving time for first-degree murder out of Pontotoc County.
