Delaware inmate dead in hanging
DOVER, Del. -- Delaware prison officials say an inmate serving a life sentence for first-degree murder has apparently hanged himself.
Officials said 21-year-old Christopher Wallace was pronounced dead at a Dover hospital about 6:30 a.m. Friday.
The cause of death was an apparent suicide by hanging in his cell at the state's maximum-security prison in Smyrna.
Wallace, from Cocoa, Fla., was serving a life sentence plus five years after being convicted of stabbing to death his 9-year-old cousin, Daniel Schlor, in 2005.
Wallace, who was 15 at the time of the killing, was found guilty but mentally ill.http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/03/11/2110279/del-inmate-dead-in-hanging.html
