GARVIN CO., OK - An Oklahoma woman died in jail just hours after seeking treatment at a hospital for severe abdominal pain.

Before arriving at the Garvin County jail 33-year-old Jamie Russell first went to Pauls Valley General Hospital.

Hospital staff reported Jamie wouldn't cooperate and was in too much pain to even lie down. So employees asked a Paul's Valley police officer to assist.

Unfortunately, when police found two prescription pills that didn't belong to Jamie they took her to jail for drug possession.

Sheriff Larry Rhodes said, "She had a medical release from the hospital stating that she was fit for incarceration."
