LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A 33-year-old man from Lansing has committed suicide by hanging himself with a bed sheet in his Ingham County Jail cell.

The Lansing State Journal reports Daniel Bronold was discovered by an officer late Tuesday morning. Authorities say they tried to revive him with the help of emergency medical workers.

Bronold was awaiting trial on charges including armed robbery, assault and unlawful imprisonment.

Sheriff's officials say he posed no suicide risk and they are investigating.
