SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a Minnehaha County Jail inmate has been found dead in his cell.

Jail warden Jeff Gromer says 40-year-old Jesse Scott Odle was found unresponsive shortly before 7 a.m. Wednesday. Jailers and medics tried unsuccessfully to revive Odle.

Gromer says there’s no indication of suicide or foul play. He says the death appears to be the result of a medical situation. An autopsy will be done.

Odle has been in custody since Jan. 4. He was scheduled to make a court appearance later Wednesday on charges that included attempted murder.
