WARREN, Maine (AP) — The Maine Department of Corrections says a man being held as a fugitive from justice on a charge that he killed a woman in Florida has been found dead in his cell.
Officials say the body of 33-year-old Shaun Corson of Madison was found hanging in his cell on Saturday at the Maine State Prison in Warren, an apparent suicide.
Associate Corrections Commissioner Jody Breton says State Police and the medical examiner are reviewing the circumstances of Corson's death.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland tells the Morning Sentinel that Corson "was found hanging in his cell."
Corson was arrested this month on a warrant from Jacksonville, Fla., where he was charged with killing his girlfriend, 31-year-old Stephanie Ann Slevin, and stealing her car.
