A man serving a life prison sentence for killing seven people in a nursing school in Oakland, died in prison, authorities said Wednesday.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said One Goh, 50, died at the California State Prison-Sacramento on March 20. Spokeswoman Vicky Waters told The Associated Press a cause of death has not been determined.

KTVU reported that the Sacramento County coroner as the cause of death.

Goh was sentenced in July 2017 seven consecutive life terms in prison plus 271 years to life without the possibility of parole for the murders at Oikos University. The police said Goh was angry at the school administrators for expelling him and the refusal to refund of his tuition.

Goh pleaded no contest to murder charges after a judge declared him mentally competent to stand trial — he would have been judged unacceptable in 2013 and 2015. Goh entered his plea two weeks later and was spared a possible death sentence in return.


April 2, 2012, shooting claimed the lives of the university’s receptionist Katleen Ping, 24, and students Doris Chibuko, 42; Lydia Sim, 21; Grace Kim, 23; Judith Seymour, 53; Sonam Choedon, 33; and Tshering Bhutia, 38. Three others survived gunshot wounds.
