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.
