Wrongly freed inmate agrees to extradition

March 17, 2010

A man captured in West Virginia after being mistakenly released from a Maryland prison has agreed to be sent back to Maryland. Raymond T. Taylor, 26, was serving three life terms for attempted murder when he escaped Feb. 25 from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center. He was released after swapping photo identification cards with his cellmate. Taylor was captured the next morning in West Virginia. During a Berkeley County Circuit Court hearing Monday, Taylor waived his right to challenge his extradition from West Virginia. Taylor was convicted in 2005 of what prosecutors called the attempted slayings of his ex-girlfriend and her two teenage daughters. All three survived gunshot wounds to the head.
