Accused Escapee Heads To Trial

A man accused of escaping from the Angelina County jail back in July of 2004 is set to go on trial Wednesday.

Tyrone Taylor is accused of aggravated sexual assault. That's in addition to previous charges for burglary with intent to commit a felony, aggravated robbery, and escape.

Deputies say Taylor's girlfriend drove behind the jail where several inmates were being transported. Taylor got into the car, and the pair took off.

They were caught a short time later.
