Inmate found hanging in cell
A man charged in a Cumberland County, Tenn., slaying earlier this year was found hanging in his cell Saturday, authorities said.
Allen Stacey Rogers, 32, was being held at the Cumberland County Justice Center on charges of first-degree murder in the death of Summer Nicole Nelms, 35, whose body was found behind a BP gas station.
Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office chief investigator Casey Cox said that officers found Rogers hanging and attempted life-saving methods, but the inmate was pronounced dead at Cumberland Medical Center.
