Authorities: Inmate found hanged in Conn. prison

Newtown (AP) _ Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate found hanged at Garner Correctional Institution in Newtown.

Guards discovered 22-year-old Andre Mario Lyle in his cell late Wednesday with one end of a sheet around his neck and the other end tied to his top bunk railing. He was pronounced dead at Danbury Hospital.

State police and corrections officials are investigating. Authorities say preliminary findings suggest Lyle killed himself, but that the official cause of death will be determined in an autopsy. He has been in custody since April on a weapons charge. His last address was in East Hartford.
