Gregg Smith, 28, an inmate at the Varner Unit in Grady, died last night of apparent suicide, the Arkansas Department of Correction announced this morning.

Smith was found "hanging from a homemade noose in the single-man cell he was assigned to," a release said. The State Police will investigate.

Smith began serving a 32-year sentence from Randolph County for first-degree murder in January 2010.  He was convicted of killing his girlfriend's father.
