Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
CARTER COUNTY, OK -- Friday morning an inmate in the Carter County jail was found dead in his cell.
At 6:30 AM Friday, Jackie Dee Perkins's cell mate told guards he didn't think Perkins was breathing.
The Carter County Sheriff's office says Perkins had already died when an ambulance arrived.
A cause of death hasn't been determined yet but Sheriff Ken Grace says he doesn't think the death is suspicious.
Perkins was 26 years old and had been booked in at 7 last night for domestic abuse.
