FLORENCE, Ala. (WAFF) – Former escaped inmate Casey White will be arraigned for murder in connection with the death of Vicky White in December, court documents show.
Casey White is now due for arraignment Dec. 2 at 1:30 p.m. at the Lauderdale County Courthouse. He was originally scheduled to appear in court on August 26.
On July 12, Casey White was officially charged with the murder of Vicky White. Casey White’s attorney, Mark McDaniel, said he plans to file a motion to see Vicky White’s autopsy report.
The Vanderburgh County, Indiana coroner ruled that Vicky White died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on May 9 after the two men were involved in a police chase in Evansville.
A Lauderdale County grand jury indictment says Casey is responsible for her death because it happened during her escape.
Police say Casey White escaped from Lauderdale County Jail in late April and went on the loose with Vicky for 11 days before the two were spotted by police in Evansville, Indiana. After being spotted, the two were involved in a police chase, during which police say Vicky White turned a gun on herself.
Casey White was in Lauderdale County Jail awaiting trial for capital murder. That trial is still set for December 12.
