Coroner trying to determine what killed OH inmate

JAIL-CELL-GENERIC1

TROY, Ohio (AP) – A coroner says it could take a couple months to determine why an inmate died in a western Ohio jail over the weekend.

Authorities said 21-year-old Katnie Moore was found unresponsive Saturday on her bunk in a cell she shared with several inmates at the Miami County jail in Troy. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Dayton Daily News  reports that an autopsy was performed Sunday, but toxicology test results are expected to take up to eight weeks to complete. Investigators do not suspect foul play or suicide.

Moore of Troy was arrested Friday for allegedly violating a protection order that stemmed from a Jan. 20 domestic violence incident involving her boyfriend.
