41-year-old Ronald Wayne Paoletto -- a registered sex offender who was arrested in January -- was discovered by a deputy who was preparing to deliver breakfast to inmates around 7 a.m. Monday at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
Paoletto had no cellmates. He was found hanging from a bunk.
Paoletto was arrested on charges of killing his ex-girlfriend, 33-year-old Tanya Marie Petro.
Petro was reported missing from her Lake Elsinore home in Riverside County on Jan. 7.
Four days later, her body was found in a wash in Landers.
Family members originally reported her missing after she failed to pick up her two young children who had been visiting their father in Arizona.
