Buried alive

What is the name of the story where the man is buried behind a brick wall in an unlocked casket? It came up in conversaion and we did not know the answer. Thank you for any help you can provide.

"The Cask of Amontillado" possibly. A man is bricked up inside a small compartment in some catacombs after being duped into thinking there is a cask of sherry in there. It is the narrator's revenge on him for insulting him.
