HELENA, Mont. -

A Montana State Prison inmate who died last week had a criminal record that included bank robberies and bombings in New England in the 1970s, a murder in an Arkansas prison in the 1980s and attempted murder and kidnapping in Montana.
    
Prison officials say Joseph Aceto died May 20 at the prison infirmary after an extended illness. He was 61.
    
Aceto was serving a 220-year term after being convicted of shooting at Rocky Hoerner at his Columbia Falls art gallery and kidnapping his former girlfriend, Eileen Holmquist, in May 2000.
    
But his criminal record stretched across the country and included 21 felony convictions.
