LONGVIEW — An inmate who collapsed at the Cowlitz County Jail died Thursday at a Vancouver hospital.

The Clark County medical examiner's office will conduct on autopsy, and the Cowlitz County sheriff's office is investigating what happened to Jenny Lynn Borelis, 28.

She hit her head Sunday when a Kelso police officer used a stun gun to stop her from running away. She was wanted on arrest warrants from the Department of Corrections.

Borelis was examined at a Longview hospital before she was booked into jail. She collapsed Wednesday and was taken to another where she died.

Borelis had told police she used heroin and meth, and was infected with hepatitis C.
