CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of an inmate found dead at a South Carolina jail.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office tells local media the man has been identified as 57-year-old Ronald Bernard Norman of North Charleston.

Authorities say a deputy was making rounds at the Charleston County jail sometime after 6 a.m. Saturday when he found a male inmate’s body in his bed.

The coroner’s office is still working to determine how Norman died. Jail records show he was booked Oct. 2 on a trespassing charge.

Norman’s was the third inmate death reported at the jail since July. In August, a 31-year-old woman died after experiencing a medical event. In July, the death of a 28-year-old male inmate was ruled a suicide.
