McPike was facing charges of kidnapping a 15-year-old girl and violating a protection order she had against him. Jail officials have said that McPike was alive at 7:33 p.m. when a guard checked on him. An hour later, the guard found McPike dead.
This is the second high-profile prison death in the area this summer. In June, convicted murderer Tony King was charged with killing his cellmate - a man charged with child molestation.
