Former American Football player found dead in Jail

Hours after a judge ruled that there was no substantial evidence against him to stand trial for the first degree murder of his cellmate, former American Football player Lawrence Philips was found dead in his solitary cell by the California Prison Authorities who claimed
he committed suicide. 
Philips went to jail in 2008 on a sentence of more than 31 years after he was convicted of twice choking his girlfriend in 2005 in San Diego and of also driving his car into three teens later that year after a pickup football game in Los Angeles.

40-year-old Lawrence who last played for Nebraska in the NFL was being accused of strangling his cellmate to death in April, 2015.
