French man who decapitated his boss found dead in prison

A man accused of decapitating his boss and trying to blow up a gas plant in France has been found dead in prison.

Authorities say 35-year-old Yassin Salhi hanged himself with sheets tied to the bars of his cell window.

He was in solitary confinement but had not been considered a suicide risk.

Salhi drove his delivery van into a building at the factory near Lyon.

The decapitated body of his boss was found nearby.

Investigators considered Salhi to be a militant Islamist.

He maintained, however, that he was motivated by a grudge against his employer.
