An investigation has begun into the death of a 27-year-old inmate at the Douglas County jail in Omaha.
A county news release says Michelle Leuze was taken to an Omaha hospital early Monday morning and pronounced dead there around 3:35 a.m.
Leuze was taken into custody on Sunday. She faced three charges: driving while her license was suspended, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of failure to appear.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says no other information is being released.
Nebraska law requires a grand jury investigation when someone dies in police custody or while being arrested.
