Re-Captured Inmate To Appear In Court

Stevie Wynn of Thornton, an inmate accused of assaulting a Perry County deputy jailer and stealing his van, will be in court Thursday after being re-arrested in February. Police say Wynn escaped from custody in August 2011 while being transported back to the Letcher County jail in Whitesburg following a court date in Hazard. The van was in the Red Fox community near the Knott and Letcher line when Wynn overpowered a jail officer and escaped with the transport van. He is now charged with assault, wanton endangerment, escape and theft by unlawful taking.
