Authorities searching for 2 escaped Missouri inmates
CARUTHERSVILLE (AP) — Authorities are searching for two inmates who escaped Sunday from the Pemiscot County jail.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Monday that 27-year-old William J. Carter is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of his estranged wife and a man.
The other escaped inmate is 41-year-old Joseph P. Latamondeer. He is charged in connection to a domestic assault and kidnapping case.
Police say the men should be considered dangerous.
They reportedly escaped through an air duct and then jumped a fence at the Pemiscot County Justice Center in Caruthersville.
The men were last seen running toward the Mississippi River.
