2 federal inmates charged with attempted escape
LONDON, Ky. (AP) — Two federal inmates serving time on drug charges have been charged with trying to break out of a prison in southern Kentucky.
A federal grand jury on Thursday charged 29-year-old Corey Adam Baker and 42-year-old Delman Demetrius Davis with attempted escape from the United States Penitentiary McCreary in Pine Knot, Kentucky.
Grand jurors say the two tried to escape on Aug. 10, but gave no details about what happened.
Baker is serving 14 months in prison after having his probation revoked. He was convicted in London, Kentucky, of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.
Davis is serving 21 years in prison after being convicted in Greeneville, Tennessee, of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Court records did not list an attorney for either man.
