CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate at the Arapahoe County jail died after he was found in his cell hanging by a noose that had been made from a bedsheet.

Sheriff’s officials say 50-year-old Jered Maes was pronounced dead about half an hour after he was found unresponsive Wednesday night.

He had been housed at the jail since July 27 when he was arrested by Aurora police on allegations of driving under the influence.

The sheriff’s office and the coroner’s office are investigating.
