The newspaper says Joseph Hyungmin Son was behind bars with a 50-year-old sex offender who was found murdered in their cell at Wasco State Prison in central California on Monday.

Son was arrested in 2008 in connection with the gang rape and kidnapping of a 20-year-old woman in California on Christmas Eve in 1990.  He was sentenced to life in prison last month.
