A Cynthiana woman who was named as a codefendant in an indictment for complicity to first degree robbery, was also charged with second degree escape.

Jerrica McCord, 23, faces an escape charge after having been charged with a felony on May 20, and then escaping from custody.

Harrison County Jailer Larry Turner testified before the grand jury on Tuesday on McCord’s escape.

She is also alleged to have taken property belonging to Santos Perales and conspired with Darrell Benton, who allegedly used or threatened the use of physical force on Perales.

McCord’s bond is $25,000 for the escape charge and $5,000 for the robbery. Benton’s bond is $5,000.

According to the indictment, Benton was armed with a deadly weapon.
