(WIAT) — A man that was recently released from prison after fleeing from detectives in a stolen vehicle has been indicted on capital murder charges, according to court documents.

Joey Poe III, was indicted on April 7 for the murder of Paula Worcester, whom he confessed to killing when he was a few days out of prison in 2016. The detectives came to question Poe about Worcester’s disappearance when he fled in the vehicle, according to Poe.
