(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.
Poe reportedly told police at the time of his initial arrest that he wanted to be taken into custody so that he could come clean about the murder.
Last July, Worcester’s family opened up to CBS42 News about the tragic case, which received closure after Poe led investigators to Worcester’s body.
