OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A Utah sheriff says a 38-year-old jail inmate has died after apparently hanging himself in his cell in Weber County.

The Weber County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that 38-year-old Lyle Robert London was discovered unresponsive in his cell on Saturday afternoon. They say he was last seen alive an hour earlier during a routine check.

London pleaded guilty last week to the aggravated murder of a 32-year-old woman.

He was scheduled to be sentenced in August.

London’s attorney James Retallick told The Standard-Examiner of Ogden (https://bit.ly/1NfGve3) that he was not shocked to hear about the death and says it was something he had worried could happen.

The Weber County sheriff’s office says there was no indication London could be suicidal and he was not under a suicide watch.
