Onondaga County District Attorney: Stacey Castor died of a heart attack

SYRACUSE - Onondaga County District Attorney, William Fitzpatrick, tells NewsChannel 9 that Stacey Castor died of a heart attack and no foul play is suspected.

Castor, one of the most notorious killers in Central New York history, died at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum security women's prison in Westchester County, New York on June 11th.

Castor was convicted in 2009 of poisoning her second husband to death with antifreeze, trying to kill her daughter in a similar way and then covering up the crime over a span of several years.

She's also accused of killing her first husband years before.
 
Castor's trial in Onondaga County Court made national headlines, including ABC's 20/20.
 
The 48-year-old was serving 51 and 1/3 years to life in state prison, the maximum sentence allowed by law.
