Inmate Casey White has been charged with the murder of his lover and correctional officer, Vicky White, after she helped him escape and the couple led police on an 11-day manhunt.

Authorities previously said Vicky, 56, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. But on Thursday, Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly announced that Casey was charged with Vicky’s murder. The charges do not say he shot her.

Vicky helped the convicted felon escape from a prison in Florence, Alabama on April 29, falsely claiming he was undergoing a mental exam. The pair then dressed up and swapped vehicles across three states before being caught in Evansville, Indiana.

Body camera footage showed Casey being taken into custody and Vicky’s body being pulled from the vehicle.
