Sedgwick Co. Sheriff's Office: Murder, kidnapping suspect attempts suicide in jail

The suspect in a murder and kidnapping last month tried to kill himself in jail, the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office confirms.

The sheriff's office says Dane Wright was found in his cell Friday afternoon with a sheet wrapped around his neck. We're told a detention deputy found Wright before he was injured.

Wright is accused of killing Reyona Caldwell and setting her house on fire before taking her three children, prompting an Amber Alert. Police found the children safe and arrested Wright in south Wichita.

The sheriff's office says Wright has been placed on suicide watch.
