The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says fights broke out Saturday at the Northeast Oklahoma Correctional Center in Vinita and on Sunday at prisons in Hominy, Sayre, Fort Supply, Lawton and Stringtown. The department says one inmate died at the medium-security Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City.
