Authorities say the former Boston University medical student accused of killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist is dead from an apparent jailhouse suicide in Boston.

Ed Geary, a spokesman for the Suffolk County sheriff’s office, says Philip Markoff was declared dead by emergency medical workers at about 10:15 Sunday morning. The body was found in the Nashua Street Jail.

Geary says no additional information is immediately available, and an investigation has begun.

Markoff’s trial was expected to take place in March.
