(Columbus) The state says a prison inmate has committed suicide, the third case of an Ohio prisoner killing himself in two months.

The State Highway Patrol says the inmate was found hanging in his cell at Lebanon Correctional Institution early Tuesday by his cell mate.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction identified the inmate Wednesday as James Blackburn of Trumbull County.

Records show the 31-year-old Blackburn entered prison in 2006 and was serving a 21-year sentence for a rape conviction.

Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro committed suicide last week as he began a life sentence for imprisoning three women in his home for a decade and repeatedly beating and raping them.
