BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A sheriff in North Carolina says a man jailed on a first-degree murder charge had an explosive escape plan.
  
Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson says 43-year-old Sean Damion Castorina sent a letter from jail containing bomb-making instructions. The sheriff says Castorina wanted two men to place the bomb on the jail's south side, blowing a hole in the wall and allowing him to escape.
  
Fortunately for the sheriff, that letter went to the wrong address, and the recipient alerted authorities.
  
The Times-News of Burlington reports that Castorina now faces more charges, including felony conspiracy, planning to make a weapon of mass destruction and attempted escape. His would-be accomplices are also in jail, each one held on $1 million bonds.
