MIDDLETON, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say an 18-year-old inmate at a Massachusetts jail has killed himself in his cell.

Deputy Maurice Pratt, of the Essex County Sheriff’s Department, says corrections officers at the Middleton House of Correction found Anfelnin Feliz hanging in his cell around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Pratt says officers immediately began treating Feliz and called for medical help. Feliz was taken to Beverly Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Feliz was being held without bail on charges of armed robbery, assault and related offenses.

Pratt says the death will be reviewed by the sheriff’s department and the Essex district attorney’s state police detective unit.
