Five Texas Jailers Fired After Inmate Found Dead

Five East Texas jailers have been fired after an inmate's death.

Authorities said one of those jailers is even charged with tampering with a government document for falsifying a jail log.

The Texas Commission on Jail Standards has also found the jail in noncompliance.

The death under investigation is that of a woman arrested on a misdemeanor Christmas Eve.

She was found unresponsive in her cell the 29th and later pronounced dead at a Longview Hospital.
