    Rhode Island prisons officials are investigating two weekend deaths at the state prison in Cranston.

    An official with the Adult Correctional Institution tells WJAR-TV the deaths Sunday are unrelated and appear to be suicides.

    Gina Caruolo says a 70-year-old inmate died in the infirmary at the Intake Service Center.

    The other inmate, who was aged 53, was a recent commitment housed in a different part of the facility.
