AUSTIN - An inmate facing a murder charge in a 2013 slaying has died after being found unresponsive in a Central Texas jail.
The Travis County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday said autopsy results are pending but authorities believe 57-year-old Bruce Allen Thompson committed suicide.
Jailers early Saturday found Thompson unresponsive under his bunk. He was later declared dead.
Austin police last July arrested Thompson on a murder count. Investigators say Thompson was charged in the fatal beating of 61-year-old Ricky Martinez at an apartment complex during a robbery.
