Authorities said Barry Tyrone Reynolds, 60, was found in a prison dorm around 2:30 a.m. with a stab wound from a makeshift weapon. He was pronounced dead in the infirmary about 25 minutes later.

Reynolds was serving five years for a drug distribution charge out of Mobile County. 

Williams was sentenced to 25 years in 2017 for attempted murder in Mobile County.

Authorities are still investigating what led to the stabbing.
