FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate found dead in his cell at the Florence County jail over the weekend.

An autopsy is planned Monday at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston in the death of 24-year-old Tavar O. Peoples of Effingham. He was found in his cell about 6 a.m. Sunday.

Peoples was jailed last month on charges of breach of the peace and failure to attend court hearings in both Circuit Court and Family Court.
