A Clover man was found dead in his jail cell at Moss Justice Center in York on Friday, authorities said.
Detention officers were conducting routine security checks around 8:30 p.m., when they found Charles Henry Moses, 49, sitting on the floor in his cell unresponsive, according to York County Sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris and York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.
Moses had been conscious two hours earlier when inmates were given food. When Moses was found at 8:30 p.m., his food had not been touched, Faris said.
Moses was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s not clear how Moses died, but it does not appear to be suspicious, Faris said. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
Moses had been in jail since July 7. He was arrested in Rock Hill by police and charged with public disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
