BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Chairwoman of the Erie County Legislature April Baskin believes Sheriff Tim Howard is not capable of running the county jails.

Baskin tells News 4 this evening inmate Robert Ingalsbe is the fourth person to die in an Erie County jail in less than three months.

We reached out to the Sheriff’s Office but they would not confirm the death, saying Ingalsbe had been released from custody.

She says there have been 31 deaths in the county jails since Howard became Sheriff in 2005.
