SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate in the same Northern California jail where a man was beaten to death last month.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/1LMjZLN ) Tuesday that an inmate at the Santa Clara County Main Jail died in custody Monday morning.

Sgt. James Jensen with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office says corrections staff administered CPR while fire crews were en route.

The inmate could not be resuscitated and was pronounced dead at 11:04 a.m.

Monday’s death remains under investigation, and Jensen says the sheriff’s office isn’t releasing additional details until the man’s family is notified.

The incident comes a month after inmate Michael Tyree was allegedly beaten to death by three deputies in the same jail on Aug. 27.

The three correctional officers have been charged with murder. Two were released on $1.5 million bail each on Monday.
