A triple murderer accused of killing his cellmate in 2017 has allegedly committed suicide.

James Junior Nice was found dead in his cell in the Idaho Maximum Security Institution Sunday afternoon around 2:00 with what officials say are self-inflicted wounds.

Nice, 45, a triple murderer -- was the only suspect after his cellmate Glenn Cox, who was serving time for drunken driving, was found stabbed, beaten and strangled in his cell last September.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
