MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- The man who killed a former co-worker outside a Madison supermarket has been found dead while serving life in prison.

Christopher O'Kroley died this morning, according to a statement sent to NBC15 from the Department of Corrections. He had been in prison at the Waupun Correctional Institution,

No cause of death is being released and the D.O.C. has begun an internal investigation, which they say is common practice when an inmate dies. The Dodge County Sheriff's Office has also been contacted.

In February 2016 O'Kroley shot Caroline Nosal as she left work at Metro Market on Madison's east side. He was caught the next day after getting into a shootout with Madison Police near the East Towne Mall.

In July 2016 O'Kroley plead guilty to first degree intentional homicide. He was sentenced to life in prison in September 2016.
