Alabama Prison Inmate Apparently Hanged Himself

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An inmate at the Donaldson Correctional Facility in western Jefferson County has died after apparently hanging himself in the shower.

Prisons spokesman Brian Corbett said the inmate was 28-year-old Eric Lavern McCay. He was found dead shortly before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

McCay was sentenced to prison on convictions for attempted
murder and on weapons charges. He was being held in a segregated
mental health unit at the prison.

Authorities said it appeared McCay used a T-shirt to hang
himself.
