A female inmate was found dead in her cell at the Chesterfield County Jail Dec. 26.

Adrianne Nicole Prince, 22, was being held on four charges of simple assault on a law enforcement officer and two charges of child neglect and abuse and was brought in on Dec. 24, according to Capt. Matthew Wilkerson with the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office.

Prince was alone in her cell at the time of her death, and police do not suspect suicide or foul play.

“We’re doing an internal investigation, but we’re not looking at it that way,” Wilkerson said.

After Prince was found unresponsive in her cell at 11:18 p.m., Sheriff’s Office personnel administered care until personnel from the Chesterfield County Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department arrived.

Prince was transported to Chippenham Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 12:36 a.m. on Dec. 27.  An autopsy is planned.
