Woman Found Dead in Cleveland Jail

An investigation is underway after a 37-year-old Cleveland woman died in a jail cell over the weekend.

Ralkina Jones died at the Cleveland Heights Police Station Jail on Sunday, KPHO reports.

According to an autopsy performed by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner, no suspicious injuries were found. A cause of death is pending further reviews of the body.

Family members say Jones was arrested on Friday after an argument with her husband at his workplace.

Jones’ passing follows the suspicious death of Sandra Bland, a Black woman who died in a Texas jail cell earlier this month.
