RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We hope to learn more Thursday surrounding the death of an inmate at the Richmond City jail.

Forty-nine-year-old Janice Motto died at VCU Medical Center Tuesday night.

While authorities don't suspect foul play, it's still not clear how Motto died.

The medical examiner was scheduled to do an autopsy this week. The Sheriff's Office and Richmond Police have now opened a joint investigation.
