Autopsy shows dead cop-killing suspect had enlarged heart.

An investigator in Mississippi has said a man charged with capital murder in the killing last May of two Hattiesburg police officers has died, after being found unconscious in his jail cell. Marvin Banks, 30, was arrested in May alongside his girlfriend, Joanie Calloway, 22, and charged with two counts of capital murder for the fatal shooting of two police officers, Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate, at a traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Forrest County. Forrest County coroner Butch Benedict said there were no signs of trauma on Banks’ body after he died on Friday, after being brought to a hospital from the Forrest County jail.

Banks was charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and with grand theft for fleeing in the police cruiser after the shooting.
