Ohio prisons order review after inmate suicide

CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio’s prison director has ordered a review of Ariel Castro’s medical and mental health treatment and the circumstances surrounding his suicide behind bars.

Authorities say the 53-year-old Castro hanged himself with a bedsheet in his cell Tuesday night.

Castro was serving a life sentence for holding three women captive in his Cleveland home for a decade.

Prison chief Gary Mohr says the Ohio state police are also investigating.
