Released Convict Captured in West Virginia
The Baltimore Sun is reporting that the convict who was mistakenly released yesterday from a Baltimore prison has been captured in West Virginia.
Raymond Thomas Taylor, who was serving three consecutive life sentences for shooting his ex-girlfriend and her two daughters in 2004, was taken into custody Friday in Martinsburg, W.Va., said Rick Binetti, a spokesman for Maryland’s prison system. West Virginia State Police were holding the escaped inmate.
Taylor, who was sentenced in 2005 to three life terms on three charges of attempted first-degree murder, escaped from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center about 2 p.m. Thursday when he posed as another inmate who was supposed to be released at that time, officials said. Binetti said Friday that Taylor’s cellmate was to be charged with conspiracy to commit escape.
