Casey White, the Alabama inmate who fled from a county jail with a correction officer before they were captured in Indiana, has been indicted on federal weapons charges, court papers show. 

A federal grand jury in Indiana has indicted White, on charges of being and fugitive in possession of a firearm and a felon in possession of a firearm, court papers show. Whites attorney did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request seeking comment on Thursday.

White was also charged earlier this month in connection with the fugitive jail guard’s death. The latest indictment charges him with illegally possession firearms, specifically an AR-15-style rifle and four other guns. 

The 38-year-old inmate was serving a 75-year sentence for a slew of crimes from 2015, including carjacking, a home invasion and a police chase. He had been serving his sentence at the William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility in Bessemer, Alabama, but had been transferred to the Lauderdale County jail while he awaited trial for the 2015 murder of 58-year-old Connie Ridgeway.
