Escaped Daviess Co. inmate found & arrested
DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - The search for an escaped inmate is over.
Officials say they located 21-year-old Mary Lou Eggleston Monday night around 9:30 at the Days Inn off New Harmony Road.
They say she was on the run with her boyfriend Jayvon Fountain, who was also at the hotel.
Eggleston escaped from custody Thursday after police say she was at the hospital receiving treatment, and stole a detention center car.
Jailer Art Maglinger says when authorities arrived at the hotel, the pair lied about their identity.
Eggleston is now facing additional charges of 2nd degree escape and theft of identity.
