The Arizona Department of Corrections says a 29-year-old inmate killed himself on Monday.

Aguilar has been in custody since Oct. 17 for violating terms of his community supervision. He previously was sentenced to 10.5 years in prison for armed robbery.

Aguilar was housed in a Phoenix prison.

An investigation is ongoing.
