DEER LODGE, Mont. (AP) — State Department of Corrections officials say a 26-year-old Montana State Prison inmate died over the weekend in an apparent suicide.

Officials say Corey Weis was found on the floor of his cell at about 4 p.m. Saturday, following an apparent suicide attempt by hanging. He was taken to the hospital in Deer Lodge, where he later died.

The department issued a news release Monday saying Weis’ death is under investigation and a coroner’s inquest is planned.

Weis was sentenced last summer to two years with the Department of Corrections for violating his probation on a criminal mischief conviction for vandalizing buildings and vehicles in Billings in June 2008.

Officials say the violations included drug use, failure to pay restitution, not reporting to his probation officer as required and not paying supervision fees.
