Inmate at Oklahoma County jail dies less than 24 hours after his arrest

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma County Detention Center says an inmate has died less than a day after his arrest after a fight with his cellmate.

In a Monday statement, the detention center said 46-year-old Shawn Slavens died June 25 at a hospital after being found unconscious in the cell. Court records show Slavens was arrested the day before for indecent exposure.

The jail statement said detention center investigators are probing the death and would report to the district attorney for possible charges.

It was the 11th inmate death of the year at the Oklahoma County jail.
