Newport man hangs self in Kenton jail

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        COVINGTON — A Newport man jailed on drug-related charges hanged himself late Monday in the Kenton County jail.

        Richard Doyen was found hanging in his cell about 11:15 p.m., jail officials said Tuesday. He had been in the jail repeatedly in recent years and was there this time for violating his probation on earlier drug charges. He had been a candidate for the county's drug court.

        Mr. Doyen would have turned 35 next week. He was sentenced last week to two years in prison for the probation violation and was waiting to be transferred to a state facility.

        Kenton County Police are investigating.
