U.S. Marshals apprehend escaped Oklahoma inmate in Missouri
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service says a man convicted of murder who escaped from a county jail in Oklahoma has been apprehended in Missouri.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Callen Stephens says Patrick M. Walker, 34, was taken into custody about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday at an extended-stay motel in St. Louis.
Authorities say Walker escaped from the Payne County Jail on Thursday after he assumed the identity of a cellmate who was being released on bond.
Walker, also known as "Notty G," was serving a life sentence for first-degree murder out of Oklahoma County and was housed temporarily at the Payne County Jail for a court appearance.
Federal marshals say Walker made his way to St. Louis with the help of a female accomplice. Details about the woman haven't been released.
