KBI Investigates Jail Inmate’s Death

Associated Press - August 29, 2017 4:28 pm

Law enforcement authorities are investigating the death of a Sedgwick County jail inmate at the Meade County Jail.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department says preliminary reports indicate the inmate died just before 7:30p.m. Monday after fighting with another inmate.

Paramedics unsuccessfully tried lifesaving measures on the inmate but he died at the scene.

The sheriff’s department says the 30-year-old man from Wichita was being held on misdemeanor charges and had been in custody for almost a month.

His family has asked that the inmate’s name be withheld.

The KBI is leading the death investigation.
