Woman Found Dead In Her Cell At Wake County Jail

RALEIGH, N.C. Authorities say a 39-year-old woman has been found dead in her cell at the Wake County jail.


Deputies say a guard found Catena Sanders unconscious in her cell around 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Jail workers started performing CPR, but paramedics determined she was already dead.


Sanders had been in the jail for nine days after being arrested Dec. 27 on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.


An autopsy has been ordered. The sheriff's office said it is still investigating how Sanders died.


The family of an inmate who died of a drug overdose at the Wake County jail two years ago sued the sheriff in November.
