ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - A 22-year-old inmate has died at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center in Albuquerque.
Jail officials say the facility's medical team responded about 8:20 p.m. Saturday to an emergency call for inmate Lillie Jones, who was having difficulty breathing.
Officials say she was responsive when the medical team arrived, and the team placed her on oxygen.
But they say shortly afterward, Jones stopped breathing.
Officials say that after several attempts to revive her, she went into respiratory failure and died.
An autopsy will determine the cause of death.
Officials say she had been jailed since Jan. 29 on a parole violation.
