OSBI investigating inmate death

CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the death of a Grady County inmate who was found in his jail cell last week.

Officials say 38-year-old William Lawrence West was discovered with a plastic bag over his face about 6:30 a.m. on Oct. 8.

West was awaiting sentencing in federal court on 10 counts of making child pornography, to which he pleaded guilty earlier this year.

West also faced five counts of child sexual abuse in Canadian County District Court where he was accused of sexually abusing two girls.
