MARIANNA, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Department of Correction says a state prison inmate has died of an apparent hanging.

Department spokeswoman Cathy Frye says 37-year-old inmate Buddy Summers was found about 8:30 p.m. Saturday hanging by a bed sheet that was twisted around his neck. Frye says medical staff were unable to resuscitate Summers and that his death is believed to be a suicide.

Summers was serving a four-year sentence for a terroristic threatening conviction in Jackson County.

Frye says Arkansas State Police will investigate the death.
