Recaptured fugitive Casey White transferred to Alabama prison after being on the run from authorities for 11 days

An Alabama corrections official who was last seen with a man held on murder charges now has a warrant out for her arrest and was last spotted in Evansville, IN. A warrant was issued for Vicky White, an assistant director of corrections for Lauderdale County, on charges of permitting or facilitating escape in the first degree. Vicky White was last seen Friday when she said she was taking inmate Casey White for a mental health evaluation at the county courthouse. No evaluation or hearing was scheduled for the inmate that day, authorities later found.

(CNN) -- Recaptured inmate Casey White was transferred to an Alabama state prison early Wednesday, more than a day after his arrest in Indiana that ended 11 days on the run with an Alabama county jail official who authorities say helped him escape.

Vicky White, the jail official accused of freeing him in late April, died Monday after a shooting that authorities believe was self-inflicted. That gunfire happened at the end of a car chase and wreck, authorities say, that led to Casey White's capture.
