BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Bridgeport man being held at Bridgeport Correctional Center on charges of violating a judge’s protective order has died apparently of natural causes.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1zQrHtZ ) that a spokeswoman for the Department of Correction says Peter Fraioli was pronounced dead at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Saturday morning.

Spokeswoman Karen Martucci said a guard found the 53-year-old Fraioli unresponsive in his cell.

Martucci said Fraioli was admitted to the jail Sept. 18 and was being held in lieu of a $30,000 bond for a charge of violating a protective order, threatening and driving while under the influence. He was scheduled to make his next appearance at Stamford Superior Court Jan. 27.

The Chief Medical Examiner said a determination of cause of death is pending.
