Los Angeles - The former owner of the Chippendales dance troupe was found dead in prison in California on the day he was to be sentenced for his role in a murder plot, writes Phil Reeves.

Somen 'Steve' Banerjee, who founded the company of male strippers, is believed to have committed suicide.

Earlier this year the former millionaire pleaded guilty to arranging the murder of his one-time business partner, Nick Denoia, an Emmy-award winning TV producer shot in the face by an assassin in 1987.
