Jailers had not checked on Jonathan Lee Carter in more than two hours on the night authorities say he hanged himself in the Madison County jail, according to logs released today by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

Carter was in an isolation cell on suicide watch on the night he died. Sheriff David Woolfork has said inmates who are on suicide watch are to be monitored every 15 to 30 minutes.
