MARTIN COUNTY, Ky (WSAZ) – A prisoner has more on his rap sheet after kicking out a window of a transport vehicle in an attempt to escape Tuesday, the Martin County Sheriff’s Department reports.

Todd Whitt, 35, of Louisa is now facing charges of escape and criminal mischief on top of two counts of attempted murder following a stabbing.

In June, WSAZ reported on Whitt’s arrest following a stabbing at a home along Buffalo Horn Road in Louisa, Kentucky.

Deputies say Whitt stabbed a woman inside her home. When she ran to a nearby home in search of help, deputies say Whitt followed and ended up stabbing a neighbor as well.

Whitt was taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.
