Special agents with the Georgia Department of Corrections are investigating the death of a Telfair State Prison inmate.

According to a news release, Chad Jacobs was pronounced dead around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

Agents are investigating it as a suspected homicide because they believe he died from injuries sustained during a fight with several inmates.

Jacobs was sentenced in Franklin County in 2014 for trafficking meth.

Another inmate was killed during a fight at the prison in May.

The U.S. Department of Justice says from 2001-2014, about four inmates a year died from homicide in Georgia state prisons.
