Sheriff: Suspect in Priest Slaying Attempted Hanging Again – ABC News
Burke County Sheriff Greg Coursey tells news outlets that 28-year-old Steven James Murray was hospitalized after he tried to kill himself Saturday at the Clayton County jail. Murray was later brought back to the jail, where he remains on suicide watch.
Authorities say Murray attempted to hang himself at the Burke County jail in June.
In April, a weeklong search for the Rev. Rene Wayne Robert of St. Augustine, Florida, ended in east Georgia when the priest’s body was found in the woods.
Authorities believe Murray kidnapped the priest, took him to Georgia in his own car and killed him there on April 10.
