ERIE, PA (AP) -

- Authorities say an Ohio kidnapping suspected charged in the killing of a woman injured in a home invasion at her Pennsylvania home has been found dead in his jail cell.

Erie County officials tell WICU-TV that 25-year-old Kyle Johnson was found hanging and unresponsive in his cell just after 3 p.m. on Sunday. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities say Johnson kidnapped his former girlfriend last week in Oakwood Village and had her in his car trunk when he broke into 58-year-old Kum Miller's home in an upscale Erie neighborhood. Police say he beat Miller and injured her husband before a neighbor shot and wounded Johnson.

Miller died from her injuries on Saturday.

An autopsy on Johnson has been scheduled for Monday.
