A Wilton man died early Thursday morning at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham.

Alexander Lewis, 21, died about 1:30 a.m., according to Anna Black, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Corrections.

The Maine attorney general’s office and Maine medical examiner’s office were notified of his death, as is standard procedure.

No cause of death was immediately released.

Lewis was sentenced to two years within the Maine corrections system in June, and was scheduled for release in January 2024 at the earliest, according to the Department of Corrections. 

That conviction came after he pleaded no contest to beating a man unconscious at a Livermore boat launch in October 2021. He was on probation at the time for a conviction of domestic violence criminal threatening, the Sun Journal reported.

Lewis received a five-year suspended sentence with three years of probation for the assault, and was serving more than two years for violating his probation from his earlier conviction, according to the Department of Corrections.
