Inmate dies in Sedgwick County Jail

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 44-year-old inmate has died of apparent natural causes at the Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1j06OnW ) the man was pronounced dead shortly before 1 p.m. Monday. The inmate's name and other details about him were not immediately released.

Sheriff's Lt. David Mattingly says officials believe the death was related to a medical issue.

Three other inmates have died at the jail this year from natural causes. Last Thursday, 59-year-old John Daniel Price died while awaiting trial on felony charges. Price had been receiving treatment for various medical conditions while he was in custody.
