Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Sheriff's officials in middle Georgia have identified an inmate who was found dead in his cell on Friday.

Officials say 34-year-old William Giles III was found dead while he and other inmates were awaiting evening meals. Authorities have said the man appeared to be asleep, but was unresponsive when staff members tried to wake him.

Investigators said there were no obvious signs of foul play. Giles' autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Giles was arrested in October on charges including aggravated assault and arson.
