A man accused of killing a Birmingham couple appeared to be "in good spirits" in the days before he was found hanged, an inquest has heard.
Rimvydas Liorancas, 37, was found dead in his cell in January at HMP Woodhill, where he was awaiting trial for the murders of Avtar and Carole Kolar.
An inquest jury sitting at Milton Keynes' Civic Offices was told that Liorancas was being given methadone to wean him off heroin when he was transferred from HMP Birmingham to Woodhill on January 21.
His English wasn't the best but he understood what I was asking. There was nothing of any significance other than his drug use. He wasn't showing any withdrawals from substance misuse - there was absolutely nothing significant about him at all.
The inquest also heard that a "suicide note" and a letter to a relative, both written in Lithuanian, were recovered from the inmate's cell after his death on January 28.
A man accused of killing a Birmingham couple 'took his own life' in a prison cell, an inquest jury has ruled.
A jury will decide if staff at a prison could have prevented the death of an inmate charged with the murders of a couple in Birmingham.
