ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - For the second time in less than a month, an
inmate housed at the Dougherty County Jail has died after he hanged
himself in his cell.

The Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday, 36-year-old Ronald Alton Foster died Sunday night.

Doughtery County Coroner Emma Quimbley said jailers attempted to resuscitate Foster, but he was pronounced dead at around 7 p.m.

Foster was incarcerated for theft, robbery and probation violations.

In November, a 56-year-old male inmate also died after hanging himself in the jail.
