HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut prison inmate has died after suffering a bruise to the back of his head in a fall. Correction officials say 36-year-old Jose Peralta of Waterbury, who was serving time for assault, was found at about 1 a.m. last Thursday on the floor of a dormitory inside the Osborn Correctional Institution in Somers. Officials say Peralta was conscious when he was taken to the prison's infirmary and transported to a local hospital after his condition deteriorated. He was pronounced dead just before 3 a.m. The department has put two department nurses on administrative leave while it investigates the death.
