WAYNESBURG, Pennsylvania — A man serving a life sentence for robbing and killing his 92-year-old neighbor has died in prison, apparently of natural causes.

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections says 59-year-old David Allan McClelland died on May 30 at the State Correctional Institution-Greene near Waynesburg.

He was sentenced in the July 2011 killing of Evelyn Stepko of Coal Center. The Green County coroner is awaiting laboratory tests before ruling on the cause of death, but says it does not appear to be suspicious.

McClelland's 51-year-old wife, Diane, and his son, 39-year-old David J. McClelland, are also in prison for conspiring in the woman's death and helping to spend $215,000 stolen from her.

David J. McClelland is serving life in prison. Diane McClelland is serving 24 1/2 to 49 years in prison.
