Death Probe Stalled

An investigation is ongoing into an inmate death in Sumter County. The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.

In March, deputies say Jeffrey Fenner was found trying to hang himself with a sheet in his cell and died on the way to the hospital.

According to Sumter County Sheriff, Johnny Hatter, a case backlog has delayed the investigation.

Hatter said the results may not be available for quite some time.
