Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. (AP) -- A San Bernardino County jail inmate awaiting trial in the death of his girlfriend has been found dead in his jail cell and authorities believe it was suicide.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman said Tuesday that 41-year-old Ronald Wayne Paoletto was found hanging from a bunk Monday by a deputy who was delivering breakfast to inmates.
Paoletto had no cellmate at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
Bachman said there was no sign of foul play and sheriff's homicide detectives believe he took his own life. More PrisonerPal.com True Crime Today Magazine Subscriptions for Prisoners since 1975
