Tulsa County Booking Photo

The Tulsa sheriff’s office says 56-year-old Darius Hatfield committed suicide while behind bars. He was found earlier in the week in his jail cell. He had wrapped a bed sheet around his neck. When found, he was rushed to the hospital. However, the sheriff’s office now says Hatfield has died. He was being held for the shooting death of his girl friend west of Pratville late last month following an argument.
