A Hinds County woman convicted of killing another woman by injecting silicone into her body has died less than four years into her life imprisonment sentence.

Tracy Lynn Garner, 58, was pronounced dead at 5:56 a.m. Sunday at Merit Health Central in Jackson.

A jury found Garner guilty of depraved heart murder and wire fraud, and she was sentenced on Sept. 2, 2014, to life for homicide/murder and five years for the fraud in Hinds County.

Garner was in prison at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF) in Rankin County.

MDOC says the cause and manner of death are pending an autopsy.
