A 30-year-old woman was found dead in her cell at the Spokane County Jail today.

Corrections deputies found the woman while making regularly scheduled cell checks just after midnight today.

Deputies shocked the woman once with an automated external defibrillator on her chest while performing CPR until medics arrived.

The woman, who was in a cell by herself, was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Investigators do not believe the death is suspicious.

The woman’s identity will be released after an autopsy today by the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
