      A 32-year-old Sumter woman has died after she was found unresponsive in her cell at the Sumter County jail.
      SUMTER, S.C. (AP) -- A 32-year-old Sumter woman has died after she was found unresponsive in her cell at the Sumter County jail.

      Coroner Harvin Bullock told The Sumter Item that preliminary reports show no signs of foul play but an autopsy and toxicology report will be conducted on Jennifer Lynn Sharp-Adams.

      Sharp-Adams turned herself in to officials Monday. Officials said she and 41-year-old Charles Yingling of Sumter were suspected of being involved in pinning a man between their cars and dragging him a short distance on U.S. 15 last month.

      Officials say the unidentified man suffered a severe cut on his right leg. Sheriff's Lt. Robert Burnish says Yingling is still being sought.
