Posted: Updated:

SUFFOLK COUNTY, MA (WLBT) - Suspected Craigslist killer Philip Markoff has died.

The chief of external affairs at the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department in Massachusetts says Markoff was found dead in his cell Sunday morning of an apparent suicide.

Markoff, a former Boston University medical student, pleaded not guilty last year in the fatal shooting of a New York woman, and the armed robbery of a Nevada woman, both at Boston hotels.

Markoff's trial was expected to begin next year.
