An Indiana sheriff says the Alabama murder suspect and jailer who evaded authorities for more than a week were heavily armed and preparing for a shootout when they were captured.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding said they were carrying four handguns and an AR-15 rifle along with $29,000 in cash.

He said convict Casey White showed no remorse over the death of jail official Vicky White, who was found mortally wounded with a gun in her hand.

He said they don’t believe Casey White shot Vicky White, but a coroner will make the final determination.
