They will eat just about any arthropod (insect, spider, other centipedes, etc.) that they can overpower.

I found him dead in a bottle lid (where it was a small quantity of water). Did he committ suicide? Or had an accident? I also put there a spider that was relatively smaller than the centipede, but he wouldn't eat it.

The spider as well was dead in the bottle lid few days before.

Three possibilities:
1. Natural causes
2. Spider bite
3. Drowning

Water should be given to insects in a small, shallow dish with pebbles added to this dish. It keeps the insects from drowning. Insects
breathe through their legs.
Read the part on the thorax, near bottom of that paragraph:
