GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - A Delaware woman whose bail was set at $1,202 has died in custody.

Citing the Delaware Department of Correction, news outlets report 37-year-old Tiffany Reeves was pronounced dead early Monday morning at the Sussex Correctional Institution.

A DOC spokeswoman says Reeves had been in state custody since Friday, and was awaiting future court proceedings on undisclosed charges. The News Journal reports that a victim notification online service indicated she was to appear before a family court judge Monday.
