33-year-old Kendra Lynette Miller, a kitchen employee at Brown Creek Correctional Institution in North Carolina, was arrested and charged after she helped 29-year-old Kristopher McNeil, a convicted murderer who worked with her in the cafeteria, to escape. He escaped by climbing over the fence of the prison. McNeil, who was scheduled to be released in less than three years, was initially charged with first-degree murder in 2009 for the murder of an accused cocaine trafficker. The convicted murderer was found near the border ofÂ Davidson and Forsyth Counties on Sunday night at approximately 11 p.m.
Miller has been incarcerated in Anson County Jail on a $500,000 bond. She faces charges of harboring a fugitive, aiding and abetting a fugitive, having sex with an inmate, and supplying a cell phone.
