RALEIGH, N.C. -

The Wake County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a woman was found unresponsive in her jail cell.

Catena Danyelle Sanders, 39, was arrested on Dec. 27 and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Deputies say a guard found Catena Sanders unconscious in her cell around 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Jail workers started performing CPR, but paramedics determined she was already dead.

An autopsy has been ordered. The sheriff's office said it is still investigating how Sanders died.

The family of an inmate who died of a drug overdose at the Wake County jail two years ago sued the sheriff in November.
