ST. JOHNS, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities on Tuesday were investigating the death of a 41-year-old inmate who was assaulted inside a cell by another inmate at the Clinton County Jail.

Steven Humphrey died Sunday at Lansing's Sparrow Hospital after the assault Saturday night. Humphrey's head hit the floor after he was knocked down, law enforcement officials told the Lansing State Journal for a Tuesday story.

Humphrey, who had been free on bond while awaiting a trial on drug charges, was arrested June 14 because he violated the conditions of his bond, Sgt. Steven Nobis said.
