— The State Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the death of an inmate at the Johnston County Jail, authorities said.

Authorities arrested Nancy Pritchard-Stone, 35, and her husband, Brad Stone, of Clayton, on domestic assault charges Sunday.

Two hours later, corrections officers found Nancy Stone hanging from a bedsheet in her cell at the county jail, authorities said.

Foul play isn't suspected in her death, authorities said.
