GRENADA COUNTY MAN DIES IN JAIL

A Grenada County man died while incarcerated in the Grenada County Jail.

Deputy Coroner Ron Royson says 22 year old Kenneth Dewayne Kendall died as a result of violence against him.

Sheriff Alton Strider says the injured prisoner was discovered in his cell last night by a jail official.

He then died a short time later.

Kendall was behind bars on a simple assault charge and unpaid fines.

The sheriff says no charges have been filed in connection with the death.

Both the state and district attorney's office are investigating.
