Louisiana State Police arrest escaped Missouri murder suspect
NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana State Troopers arrested a man who escaped a Missouri prison where he was being held for two counts of murder.
State Police say Troopers found and arrested 27-year-old William Carter around noon on Saturday. They were contacted by U.S. Marshals saying that Carter was in a building on Loyola Avenue. They later found a man fitting Carter's description walking on Claiborne Avenue near Tulane Avenue.
Troopers took Carter into custody without resistance. He is now in Orleans Parish Central Lockup where he awaits extradition.
Carter escaped the Pemiscot County Jail in southeast Missouri on October 15 with one other inmate. He was arrested for allegedly running over his estranged wife and another man in June 2016.
