NEW YORK: Two guards who were on duty the night Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide in a high-security jail were charged on Tuesday with falsifying records after they apparently failed to check on him.

Epstein, 66, was found dead in New York´s Metropolitan Correctional Center on August 10 as he awaited trial on allegations that he trafficked girls as young as 14 for sex.

US justice officials are investigating how the wealthy financier, one of America’s most high-profile on-remand detainees, was able to kill himself when he was supposed to be under close watch.

New York prosecutors charged Tova Noel, 31, and Michael Thomas, 41, on Tuesday with making false records to defraud the United States by impairing the lawful function of a federal prison.
