The illegal immigrant accused of murdering five people in Kansas and Missouri tried to commit suicide in jail Thursday morning, officials said.
Pablo Antonio Serrano-Viterino, 40, cut himself with a safety razor a day after police captured him hiding facedown in a ditch with a rifle near him, according to the Montgomery County, Mo., Sheriff’s Office.
Jail guards had placed him on suicide watch Wednesday, but Serrano-Viterino moved into the county jail’s general population Thursday.
After jailers found him bleeding from the cut, an emergency crew rushed him to a nearby hospital, where he is “under guard and in stable condition,” officials in the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
