MILWAUKEE - A man being driven to a mental hospital by two Washington County sheriff's deputies died after slitting his throat with a surgical scalpel blade he took from his wallet while he was handcuffed at the waist, the Winnebago County sheriff's office reported Friday.

Washington County Sheriff Dale Schmidt said his department's internal investigation into the death of Marc J. Rosario would continue until at least late next week, but that people being transported by his deputies should not have possessions on them.
