GATESVILLE, Texas (KWTX) The death of a female Coryell County Jail inmate who died after an altercation with jail staff has been ruled a homicide but no criminal charges have been levied.
Justice of the Peace Coy Latham pronounced Kelli Leanne Page, 46, dead following an altercation inside the jail between Page and corrections officers.
Latham said Wednesday the report of autopsy classifies Page’s death as homicide but no criminal charges have been filed.
Texas law says a victim’s death can be ruled a homicide when it happens as the result of another’s actions, but does not necessarily involve criminal activity.
Latham said he will set a formal death inquest sometime before Christmas but on Wednesday morning had not yet docketed the issue.
State law allows investigating entities in such cases to withhold information about the death pending an inquest, which Latham said would be held in open court.

Page died October 8 after being restrained inside her cell.


Jailers attempted to revive her with CPR and other life-saving efforts but to no avail. … http://www.kwtx.com/content/news/Coryell-County-Jail-inmate-death-ruled-homicide-462294703.html
