Death row Inmate Kenneth Davis, who was convicted of killing an off-duty Jackson police officer during an armed robbery in 1989, has died of natural causes according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Davis, 52, died Monday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

He was sentenced to death on March 15, 1991, for fatally shooting Bobby Joe Biggert. Biggert walked in as Davis was robbing a south Jackson pawn shop on February 23, 1989.

Davis challenged his conviction, claiming ineffective assistance of counsel. However, the Mississippi Supreme Court denied his claims in a ruling in July 2004.
