Douglas County Inmate Death Investigated

Douglas County Corrections says a man in custody at the corrections center has died.

They say 44-year old Jason Rudy was found unresponsive in his cell Wednesday night.

The County Corrections Director says personnel immediately started C-P-R, which Omaha Firefighters continued, but Rudy was declared deceased at a hospital.

County Corrections says Rudy was jailed last December on four counts of Arson.

Under Nebraska law, a grand jury will eventually investigate the death.
