Accused killer colonel begins hunger strike in jail

Alleged multiple murderer Col. Russ Williams (inset) has been taken off 24-hour suicide watch in jail, just days after he tried to kill himself and at the same time that he began a hunger strike (full story in the Whig and after the jump). The former Trenton air base commander attempted suicide early Saturday morning (previous post) by jamming a cardboard toilet tissue tube down his throat. He was quickly rescued by staff at the Quinte Detention Centre in Napanee, the provincial facility where he’s been incarcerated since his arrest in early February for two murders and two sexual assaults.
