The Georgia Department of Corrections says 25-year-old Demitri Carter died at Phillips State Prison in Buford and 39-year-old James Wheeler died at Wilcox State Prison in Abbeville. Both were found unresponsive in their cells Sunday.
Corrections officials said both appear to have killed themselves but declined to provide more details, saying the deaths are under investigation.
Carter had been sentenced to prison in 2014 for aggravated assault. Wheeler was sentenced in 2001 for armed robbery and theft.
Separately, the department says 57-year-old Roy Bradshaw was found unresponsive in his cell at Hancock State Prison on Tuesday and was pronounced dead. He was sentenced in 2009 for charges including murder.
