FULTONVILLE -- The Mont-gomery County Sheriff's Office and State Police are investigating the death of a detained man at the Montgomery County Correction-al Facility.

Kenneth W. McConville, 37, was being detained in a holding cell at the facility Friday, awaiting arraignment on unspecified charges when he died, according to State Police Investigator Wayne Matice.

"The cause of death is unknown but there was no foul play," Matice said today. "How-ever, we are still waiting for the autopsy results."

Montgomery County Sheriff Michael Amato said McConville was booked and placed in the holding cell Friday night without incident. As standard routine, police checked on him every half hour.

"There came a point where they found he had deceased," Amato said, adding the sheriff's department is working with State Police to determine the cause of McConville's death.McConville was arrested on Friday charged with first degree criminal intent and second degree harassment stemming from an order of protection violation, according to Matice.  He was scheduled for arraignment Saturday in the Town of Minden court. The New York State Commission of Corrections will be reviewing the case.
