Richmond Co. inmate dies in hospital

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - An Richmond County inmate died Tuesday at Georgia Regents Medical Center, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

The Richmond County Coroner's Office conducted an autopsy on Nigel Rudolph Miller, 55, and a preliminary report indicates he died of natural causes, according to a statement from the sheriff's office.

Miller was serving time at the Charles B. Webster detention center after having his probation revoked on Sept. 3. When he arrived at the detention center, he told deputies he was on medication and had several serious medical conditions.

He was housed in the medical unit during his stay at the detention center, and was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center on Monday after his condition worsened.

Miller was allowed to have visits with family at the hospital.

He had one year and 22 days left on his sentence, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office is conducting a review of Miller's file.
