Death of inmate in Lucas County jail under inquiry

Authorities are investigating the death of an inmate in the Lucas County jail.

Christopher W. McGaha, 34, of Haskins, Ohio, was found unresponsive in his cot by a corrections officer about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday as the inmates were being called to breakfast, said Jim O'Neal, jail administrator.

He was booked into the lockup on Nov. 25 on two counts each of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification and robbery and was held in a one-person cell on the sixth floor.

His trial was scheduled for Tuesday, according to Common Pleas Court records. The Lucas County Coroner's Office has scheduled an autopsy for Wednesday.
