Thirteen-year-old Jericho Werrell escaped from a North Carolina courthouse on Tuesday ahead of an appearance in front of the judge concerning the double-murder case he’s facing. Werrell escaped from the courthouse, barefoot and shackled. Authorities learned that Werrell had found a bike nearby and rode miles to a relative’s house. He was found with his mother, Nikki Jacobs, on Wednesday night.
Werrell, along with this co-defendant Derrick Deshawn Hunt, 19, both face two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of two brothers.
