Escapee headed to S.C. to face charges

The Associated Press

SOUTH BEND - A jail escapee captured in Indiana is headed back to South Carolina to face charges of carjacking and kidnapping a woman who remained missing Monday.

Chadrick Fulks waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Indiana.

Mr. Fulks, 25, who escaped from a western Kentucky jail Nov. 4, waived an identity hearing, agreeing to stipulate that he is the man wanted in South Carolina.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Donald Schmid said Mr. Fulks will be sent to South Carolina "almost immediately."

Mr. Schmid said all he could say about the missing woman, Alice Donovan, of Gallivants Ferry, S.C., is that authorities still have no idea where she is.

Mr. Fulks and Branden Basham, 21, escaped from the Hopkins County Detention Center in Madisonville, Ky. Mr. Basham was arrested Nov. 17 after allegedly trying to carjack a woman and her teenage daughter at an Ashland, Ky., mall.

Ms. Donovan, 44, has been missing since she was abducted Nov. 14 from a Wal-Mart parking lot in Conway, S.C., near Myrtle Beach.

Witnesses told authorities they saw Ms. Donovan with Mr. Fulks and Mr. Basham Nov. 14.
