A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to death for fatally stabbing a woman in her home. A Pasco County judge sentenced Derral Wayne Hodgkins on Friday. He was convicted in August 2011 of first-degree murder.
FROSTPROOF, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate in a central Florida jail.
Polk County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie Eleazer says other inmates yelled out to deputies Friday evening that Stephen Harry Grimm was not breathing.
Eleazer says deputies and then paramedics attempted to revive Grimm. The 53-year-old Eaton Park man was pronounced dead at the Frostproof jail.
An autopsy will be conducted. Eleazer says no foul play is suspected and there was no trauma to Grimm's body.
Grimm had been sentenced in October to 180 days in jail for violating probation. He had been arrested on DUI charges in July 2011 and in April 2012.
Eleazer says that when Grimm was booked into the jail, he said he suffered from a heart condition and previously had a heart attack.
