Pelham - An inmate convicted of murder commits suicide.

A month ago, 53-year-old James S. Walraven used a torn bed sheet to hang himself inside his segregated Autry State Prison jail cell. Walraven was found by a correctional officer.

He was convicted in 1983 of murder in Whitfield County and served 20 years of his life sentence.
