GLOBE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate at the Gila County Jail in Globe has died.

County Sheriff’s officials say jail staff found Jack Arthur Voakes having difficulty breathing around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Emergency responders provided medical attention and Voakes was transported to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The 61-year-old Voakes was arrested by Payson police two months ago on a failure to appear for a warrant.

Records from the sheriff’s office show Voakes was facing charges of DUI, assault/domestic violence, theft, possession of narcotic drugs and false reporting.
