A 35-year-old man who was incarcerated at the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services' work ethic camp died Sunday, according to a department news release. 

Charles Spray had started a 4-6-year sentence in February. 

Spray was convicted on a charge of strangulation in Dodge County. 

The cause of Spray's death hasn't been determined. A grand jury will investigate his death, as is required with any in-custody death in the state.

The Work Ethic Camp is a 200-bed facility for men that provides an individualized program for inmates. With intermittent supervision, minimum-custody individuals may be eligible to work on road crews.
