Delaware corrections officials say an inmate was found dead in his cell Saturday night after apparently hanging himself. The Department of Correction says 35-year-old Demian Filkins was found unresponsive in his cell and was pronounced dead about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The Ellicott City man was being held after failing to post bail on drug charges. Correction officials say foul play is not suspected, and Filkins' body has been turned over to the State Medical Examiner's office.
