Springfield, Il (AP/KMOX)–Police say a man who admitted fatally shooting a southern Illinois girl was found dead in his jail cell today…..the same day he was to begin serving a 60-year sentence.  Illinois State Police do not suspect foul play in the death of 19-year-old Carl Dane.

Dane pleaded guilty last month to the July 20-10 first-degree murder  of 15-year-old Sidnee Stephens of Pinckneyville.  Three other teens have pleaded not guilty to charges related to the killing.
