An inmate in the Rogers County jail is dead after he electrocuted himself Monday morning.

Sources say 47-year-old Leslie Paul Jones was found dead in his cell. The Chelsea man was charged with several sex crimes including rape and incest.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called in.

"We got the call at 5:31 this morning," said OSBI spokesperson Jessica Brown. "It's pretty routine for jails to call OSBI in matters such as this."

According to court records, Jones's trial on charges of rape, rape by instrumentation, lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child and incest was set to begin Monday.

He was arrested in December 2011.

Jones used a CPAP machine to electrocute himself, sources tell News On 6. CPAP machines are electric air pumps used in the treatment of sleep apnea.

"We're going to wait 'till the ME's office rules it," Brown said. "It will be up to them to decide it (cause of death)."
