A prisoner at Donaldson Correctional Facility died after being restrained by prison officers, officials said Monday.

Charles Agee, 47, suffered fatal injuries Friday when he was sprayed with a chemical agent, then subdued in the prison's medical clinic.

His death "is directly related to the restraint," said Jefferson County Coroner Jay Glass. His office is performing an autopsy on Agee, and the full results should be available in about a week.

Agee was under treatment for mental illness.
