DEL VALLE -- In Travis County, a 25 year old man accused of shaking an infant to death commits suicide in jail.

A corrections officer found Ryan Christopher King hanging from his cell in the Del Valle Corrections Complex on Friday afternoon. The officer gave King CPR, but he died a short time later.

King had been in jail since April and was awaiting trial for an injury to a child charge.

This is the second suicide at the Del Valle facility this year.
