An inmate in Brazoria County died after falling and hitting his head in his cell. The sheriff's office said Lisandro Torres, 52, was hospitalized Thursday after other inmates reported the fall. Torres was being transferred back to the detention center the next day when a deputy noticed he wasn't breathing. Minutes later, Torres was dead.

The Alvin native was awaiting sentencing for a DWI conviction.
