AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Sheriff’s officials in northeast Ohio say a man facing multiple rape and sexual imposition charges apparently killed himself in a jail cell.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement Wednesday that says the 63-year-old man from Green was found unresponsive Feb. 12. No other details of his death were released, and a sheriff’s inspector declined to comment.

The statement says the man showed no signs of being suicidal when he was booked into jail in October.

Court records show the man recently underwent a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he was competent to assist in his defense. His attorney previously filed a motion that said the man had a mental health history.
