A RYDE man charged with murdering his wife has died following a 'self-harm incident' in prison.
Rory Morris, 53, was found in his cell at Winchester Prison at around 11.40am on Monday, according to a Prison Service spokesman.
He was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead at around 6.30pm the following day.
Despite the fact Mr Morris was under constant observation, he had seriously harmed himself, said the spokesman.
Mr Morris was remanded in custody at HMP Winchester charged with the murder of his wife, Deborah Morris.
He was arrested after Mrs Morris, 53, was found dead at the couple's home, at St John's Road, on May 25.
She died of stab wounds.
In a statement issued after her death, family members described Mrs Morris as "a caring, loving, giving and devoted mother, grandma, daughter, wife and friend."
Further tributes were paid by Mrs Morris' colleagues at Tesco, Ryde, where she had worked for more than 15 years.
Mr Morris had not entered a plea to the murder charge and was due back in court on Monday, July 16.
