A Utah State Prison inmate died Friday night in an apparent suicide.
Charles Mathews, 26, was found in his cell in a medium-security area of the prison. Mathews did not have a cellmate.
Paramedics responded to the prison about 10:21 p.m. after receiving a call about a patient who had a laceration, according to a dispatch log. Mathews was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly after 11 p.m., according to a news release from the Utah Department of Corrections.
