HUNTINGDON, Tenn. (AP) -- A Gleason man facing a first-degree murder charge has been found dead in his Carroll County Jail cell.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Friday that 42-year-old Paul Honaker was found hanged in his cell early Wednesday.

According to The Jackson Sun, Honaker was in jail awaiting trial in the stabbing death last July of 58-year-old Linda Jackson of McKenzie at her home.
