In the news: Prison break


(CNN) -- A Texas death row inmate escaped from the Harris County Jail in Houston on Thursday, dressed in civilian clothes and carrying identification indicating he worked in the attorney general's office, a sheriff's department spokesman said.

Charles Victor Thompson, 35, was convicted of capital murder in April 1999 in the shooting deaths of his former girlfriend, Dannise Hayslip, and her friend, Darren Cain, 30.

The convict, who was re-sentenced to death Monday, slipped out of the jail around 3:30 p.m., wearing khaki pants, a dark blue shirt and white tennis shoes, according to sheriff's Lt. John Martin.
