The manhunt for Richard Matt and David Sweat — the two convicted murders who broke out of a New York state prison — has barely ended. Now, a similar case has cropped up in North Carolina.
Police are searching for Kristopher McNeil, who is serving a 14-year prison sentence for murder, after he was discovered missing Saturday morning from a jail in Polkton, North Carolina.
Authorities have now charged Kendra Lynette Miller, a food service officer at the prison, with helping him escape. She faces several felony charges, including aiding and abetting a fugitive and having sex with an inmate.
