COVINGTON COUNTY, MS –
The search is on for three inmates who escaped from the Covington County Jail late Wednesday night.
Sheriff Darrell Perkins said 21-year-old Dillon Parr, 32-year-old Alexander Knight and 30-year-old Christopher Love escaped together through a skylight inside the jail around 10:45 p.m.
Perkins said a jailer noticed one of the inmates as they were running away, and deputies started searching for the trio immediately.
All three inmates were still at large as of 3 a.m. Thursday.
Parr, of Mt. Olive, is charged with manslaughter in the November 2018 shooting death of his neighbor, Christopher Hand.
