Chatham Inmate Hangs Himself

Posted Updated

PITTSBORO — A Chatham County Jail inmate accused of killing his wife and wounding his daughter has hanged himself in his cell.

Investigators say Jesse Brewer went on a rampage back in April because he believed his wife was having an affair.

The 53-year-old inmate was found dead Friday.

The sheriff says Brewer used bedsheets to make a noose around his neck.

He was not on a suicide watch.
