Plymouth: Accused killer dies in jail

A Bridgewater man dies behind bars, and authorities say he may have taken his own life.

30-year-old Eric Snow was found alone and unconscious in his cell at the Plymouth County Jail early Saturday morning and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

He and a friend had been awaiting a May trial on charges they killed two homeless men in 2005.

Snow’s co-defendant, James Winquist of Weymouth, will stand trial alone for the deaths of William Chrapan and David Lyons.

Authorities say Snow and Winquist were members of a white supremacist group.
