Chelsea Manning has died after a lung cancer diagnosis.
The US Army private died Sunday, a spokesman for Chelsea Manning told CNN.
The news comes a day after the first anniversary of Manning’s sentencing for leaking hundreds of thousands of US military and diplomatic documents.
Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, said she had been diagnosed with lung cancer on April 6.
He was found unconscious by her husband and her husband’s girlfriend in their Brooklyn apartment, Coombs said.
Manning, who is serving a 35-year prison sentence, died at a hospital.
Manzilers lawyer said she was in hospice care in California.
She was in a coma for several days before she was released on March 15.
Maning had served time in the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan and was charged with aiding the enemy, a charge that carries a maximum 10-year sentence.
She had been accused of leaking a trove of classified military and state secrets to Wikileaks and other online publications.
She pleaded not guilty and has since been released on $50,000 bail.
