Bell County Magistrate Dies After Having Seizure In Jail

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a Bell County magistrate, who had been jailed after police said he tried to arrange to have another person killed.
    
Kentucky State Police said 51-year-old Ricky Goodin died Saturday morning at Pineville Community Hospital.
    
A preliminary investigation shows Goodin began having a seizure inside his cell at Bell County Detention Center. Police said he had another seizure at the hospital.
    
Police said no foul play is suspected. An autopsy will be performed by a medical examiner in Frankfort.
    
Goodin, of Pineville, was arrested earlier this month on a charge of solicitation to commit murder.
    
In March, Goodin was arrested on multiple charges after authorities say he sold prescription drugs and methamphetamine out of his pawn shop.
