AN investigation has been launched after a convicted murderer died after he was found hanging in his cell at a Doncaster jail.
Stuart Aherne was locked up for life in 2003 after stabbing a woman to death in Manchester after she asked him to pick up his litter.
The 26-year-old was found hanging in his cell at HMP Lindholme on Saturday morning. He was pronounced dead ten minutes later.
A Prison Service spokesman said: “As with every death in custody, the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman will conduct a full investigation.”
