RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities suspect suicide in the death of a 72-year-old inmate at a San Bernardino County jail.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2mmbXUv) David Damits was found Saturday hanging from the top bunk of his single-man cell at West Valley Detention Center. He died at the scene.

Sheriff’s officials say Damits had been undergoing treatment after being found mentally incompetent to stand trial. They didn’t say what his alleged crimes were.
