(WTVM) - For the second time in a week, an inmate at the Muscogee County Jail has died.

Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan confirms to News Leader 9 that 21-year-old Maurice Grier was pronounced dead Tuesday morning at the Midtown Medical Center.

He had been complaining of a headache, then just after midnight he started banging on the windows of the cell saying he couldn't breathe.

Emergency medical services were called and checked him out. A CAT scan revealed he had a brain bleed. Grier's body was flown to Atlanta for an autopsy.

A female inmate was discovered dead at the jail last week.
