  • Arkansas Department of Correction
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.
