Escaped prisoner back in St. Charles Parish jail

Posted: Updated:

KILLONA, La. (AP) - St. Charles Parish sheriff's deputies say a prisoner who escaped from the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center in Killona is back in custody.

Deputies captured 35-year-old Charles J. Conrad III at a hotel Tuesday in Kenner. He was working in the jail's kitchen when he climbed over a fence near a trash bin early in the morning.

Authorities say investigators learned Conrad contacted 36-year-old Erica Williams, of Kenner, allegedly to pick him up. A warrant has been issued for Williams on a charge of principle to escape. She remains at large.

Conrad, a state Department of Corrections prisoner, was being held on charges of armed robbery and second-degree battery and has family in the St. Rose and Kenner areas.
