29-year-old Antonio Brown escaped from jail at 4:17 Monday afternoon, the eve of when he was to be sentenced.
Back on January 9th Brown pleaded no contest in Saline County District court to first degree murder during commission of a felony. He also pleaded no contest to two counts of child abuse in connection with the 2011 beating death of 14-month-old Clayden Lee Urbanek.
Late Tuesday morning he still was not back in custody. Brown should be considered dangerous.
