ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — One of two convicted Florida murderers captured last weekend after being released mistakenly from prison went before a judge for a first appearance hearing.
Charles Walker was told Wednesday during the hearing at the Orange County Jail in Orlando that the paperwork was in place to send him back to the Franklin Correctional Institution.
That's the prison Walker walked out of within the past month with the help of forged orders that cut his prison sentence from life to 15 years.
Walker was captured last weekend at a Panama City motel, along with another convicted murderer who also was released from prison with the help of forged documents.
A judge has signed an order to send Walker and Joseph Jenkins back to the prison.
