LOS ANGELES—A 68-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder has apparently killed himself at a Los Angeles County jail.

The Sheriff's Department says Li Zhu of Arcadia was found dead Wednesday night at the Twin Towers jail in downtown LA.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune ( http://bit.ly/1lKdT08) says deputies found Zhu hanging in his cell.

Zhu was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of fatally stabbing his daughter-in-law, 41-year-old Xiaolin Li, at the Arcadia apartment they shared with her husband.

The Tribune says police think the motive was related to an ongoing family dispute.
