A 26-year-old Cumberland County Jail inmate remained in critical condition Saturday evening at Maine Medical Center after attempting suicide earlier in the week.

Dante Majeroni has been on life support at the hospital since a suicide attempt Tuesday night in his maximum security cell, the sheriff’s office said.

Majeroni was arrested Feb. 15 on domestic violence charges and had been in maximum security after he was accused of trying to contact the victim of the alleged assault.

It was Majeroni’s second suicide attempt in recent weeks. He had been placed on suicide watch after the first incident.

Sheriff Kevin Joyce, who oversees the jail, said two investigations into Majeroni’s latest suicide attempt are underway.
